The pupil premium is national funding which school receives to help narrow the attainment gap and raise achievement of Children Looked After and those eligible for free school meals. These children are considered the most disadvantaged in schools and the additional funding is directed to addressing these children’s needs.

The use of the premium is a matter for our school but the DFE expects schools to be held accountable for how they support the achievement of these identified children. At Cribden House school the pupil premium is anticipated to be around £43,000 for the next financial year.

In 2016-17 this will be used:

  • Provide a range of one to one interventions such as Education City - Numeracy, Stile Numeracy, Five Minute Box, Rapid Maths
