Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools to help raise the attainment of pupils in English and Maths.  It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years or been in care for 6 months or longer.

Catch Up Premium

In June, the Government announced a £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up.   Further guidance has now been released and can be viewed at Schools allocations are calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in Reception through to Year 6.


Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. To support schools to make the best use of this funding, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has published a support guide for schools with evidence-based approaches to catch up for all pupils. We have considered this when planning our approach for the use of this funding.


Barriers to getting pupils back on track:

  • Loss of learning due to school closure
  • Pupil attitudes to learning and resilience and stamina to access learning for longer periods of time
  • Changes in behaviour, including anxiety, self-esteem and self confidence
  • Pupils not being able to make links to previous learning
  • Phonics knowledge and application for pupils in EYFS and KS1
  • Foundations of learning in Early Years


At Littleport Community Primary School, this money will be used in order to provide:

  • Curriculum resources and materials that support “catch up” and the mental health of all pupils
  • Additional support staff capacity to develop the outcomes of children who have been identified as needing “catch up” in their learning


The impact of the expenditure on the educational attainment of pupils at Littleport Community Primary School will be assessed using:

  • Termly assessments
  • Ongoing teacher assessment and assessment for learning
  • Assessment tools built into online interventions
