The Warriner School

Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The purpose of the pupil premium grant is to help students that may come from a disadvantaged background to improve their attainment. For students that are eligible, there is extra funding given to the schools to lessen the performance gap between those in receipt of pupil premium and their peers.

Priorities for the Pupil Premium Grant

Our intent at The Warriner is to raise the achievement of students that are in receipt of the Pupil Premium grant. Through best-quality teaching and pastoral provision we aim to develop successful learners that are confident and responsible. This will help maximise social mobility and support students growing beyond The Warriner. Our implementation can be seen in the tiered approach to using the grant.

Students are eligible for the funding if they meet certain criteria:

Free School Meals

The Pupil Premium for 2020-2021 will include students recorded in the January 2020 school census who have had a recorded period of FSM eligibility since May 2014, as well as those first recorded as eligible at January 2020.

Looked-after and previously looked-after children

The pupil premium for 2020 to 2021 will include students recorded in the January 2020 school census and alternative provision census, who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order). These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.

Ever 6 Service Child

For the purposes of these grant conditions, Ever 6 service child means a student recorded in the January 2020 school census who was eligible for the service child premium since the January 2015 census as well as those recorded as a service child for the first time on the January 2020 school census. The grant will be allocated as set out below.

Use of the Pupil Premium and Literacy/Numeracy Catch-Up Premium in 2019/20 and 2020/21

The DfE require all schools to publish online information about how they have used the premium in the previous year, and their strategy for the current academic year. 

This ensures that parents and others are made fully aware of the progress and attainment of pupils covered by the premium.

The interventions used result in students making progress in line with the rest of the school.
