The Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium grant is allocated to schools from the Department for Education (DfE) to help pupils from the most deprived backgrounds achieve their full potential. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals (FSM); those looked after by the Local Authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and to raise attainment. A link to the DfE page, containing further information about the rationale behind the Pupil Premium, can be found here.

If you think your family might be eligible, please click here and save hundreds of pounds whilst helping raise money for West Wimbledon Primary School.

It is for each school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as it is assumed each is best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at the School. However, to ensure proper accountability, schools are required to report on:

  •  the amount of funding received;

  • how this is being used;

  • the impact of any work done.

The School’s Pupil Premium Champion is Seanne Wilmot, who is also the School’s  Assistant Headteacher, focusing on inclusion.

C. Pupils eligible for Pupil Premium in EYFS are not achieving Good Level of Development in line with their peers, particularly in writing and Maths. This affects attainment at the end of Key Stage 1
External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)
