Pupil Premium

Godley Community Primary Academy

Pupil Premium Report 2015-16

Pupil Premium Statement

Schools and academies receive a Pupil Premium Grant to support their work in tackling underachievement by disadvantaged pupils.  The Pupil Premium is an amount of money allocated by the government to schools for:

  • Children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM)

  • Children who have been ‘looked after’ continuously for more than six months.

  • Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces.

At Godley Primary Academy we work hard to support disadvantaged pupils. We regularly review our actions and their impact to ensure improved outcomes for pupils.  We are committed to ‘closing the gap’ between all pupils and any specific cohort or group of pupils. We also ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, priority groups or individuals.

In 2015/16 the level of premium received per pupil equates to £1320 for pupils in reception to year 6 recorded as ever 6 FSM and £1900 for looked after children (LAC) and service children.

At Godley we have used our Pupil Premium allowance to:

  • Increased pupil motivation and support

  • Raise attainment levels in Reading, Writing and Maths

  • Improve social interaction between peer groups

  • Improve attendance
