Pupil Premium at Reintegreat

We have high aspirations and ambitions for our students, and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion for knowledge and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure. At Reintegreat we are determined to ensure that our young people are given every chance to reach their full potential.

Background to Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium is a new government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential. The Government has used pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM), looked after children and school children as indicators of deprivation, and have provided a fixed amount of money for schools per pupil based on the number of pupils registered for FSM over a rolling six-year period. This fixed amount of money is expected to increase every year for the course of this current Parliament. At Reintegreat we will be using the indicator of those eligible for FSM as well as identified vulnerable groups as our target children to ‘close the gap’ regarding attainment.

Our Approach

Money will be ring-fenced and used to benefit all pupil premium students. We will establish clear lines of responsibility with a member of the senior leadership team and a link governor taking responsibility for Pupil Premium.

At Reintegreat our high proportions of FSM children means that our pupil premium money will represent a significant proportion of our budget and we will plan our spending carefully to ensure that it is spent to maximum effect. This means making informed decisions about our spending such as:

  • Ensuring that spending is directly linked to gaps in attainment.

  • Making use of our own data to expand existing interventions.

  • Making sure there is at least good teaching in a day-to-day basis.

  • Making use of research when evaluating interventions and considering the implementation of new interventions.
     

Money will be used to benefit all pupil premium children and support higher as well as lower ability children by extending the provision on offer.
