Pupil Premium

The government introduced Pupil Premium funding in April 2011 to raise the attainment of eligible pupils from Year R to Year 11 and to narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers. The funding gives school additional money to support


  • Children who are eligible for Free School Meals - FSM
  • Children in local authority care - CLA
  • Children of parents in the Armed Services

Pupil Premium Funding is paid directly to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need. Ofsted reports on the school’s use of the funding and how this affects the attainment of these pupils.


At Sarisbury Infant School we use the money creatively and flexibly to secure the best possible outcomes for these groups of children.

We use some of the Pupil Premium to pay for Emotional Literacy support to give children from vulnerable backgrounds any pastoral care that they need. We always discuss opportunities for using the funding with parents. We offer all of these children one free place at an after school club of their choice.


Pupil Premium Budget


The school has tracking systems in place to monitor the impact of pupil premium spending and this is reported to governors. The progress of these children is closely monitored and staff provides extra support where necessary to ensure that these groups meet or exceed age related expectations.


Additional activities and opportunities are organised by the Jigsaw workers for both the parents and the children and these have been very successful with positive comments from the parents.
