Godshill Primary School


What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

In the 2015 to 2016 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
£1320 for pupils in Reception to Year 6.

If you receive any of the following, then you may be entitled to pupil premium money for the School.

Income support/Income Based Jobseekers Allowance/Income related Employment and Support Allowance/Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999/The guarantee element of State Pension credit/Child tax Credit provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credits and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) the does not exceed £16,190/ Working Tax Credit "run on".

Please see Mrs Knight if you think you are entitled to Pupil Premium.

The school decides how it is best to utilise the Pupil premium allocated to them. Schools are held accountable for their use of this additional funding and the impact it had on Educational Attainment. School Performance Tables now include a "Narrowing the Gap" measure showing how the identified children perform in each school.

Godshill received £41,500 for pupil premium money. Successful strategies have been continued with new additions to further improve children's progress and provision. From detailed analysis of the new SATs, children who were pupil premium middle attainers at KS1 need a greater conversion percentage to achieve Age Related Expectation, and higher attainer pupil premium  at KS 1 need a greater conversion to high score in KS2. One of the main barriers for learning are mental health issues and self esteem, which has been the focus for improving outcomes this year.

Analysis of the cohorts of children show that in years 5 and 6, pupil premium children made better progress from their starting points at the beginning of the year than non pupil premium children.
