Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of  disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. The documents below show how we at Ryelands have used our pupil premium grant funding over the past academic year and how we plan to use any future funding. If you would like to speak to someone in school about pupil premium funding, please contact  Mr Dougan, the Deputy Headteacher.

Pupil Premium Grant allocations and Free School Meals

We would like to remind all parents and families that it is in their interests to register for their entitlement to Free School Meals and encourage them to do so as soon as possible. This is also true even if currently your child or children are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and already receiving Free Schools Meals. Children who are registered to receive Free School Meals benefit from access to additional services and reduced rates for some activities and trips. This begins in the year they are registered and does not end until they finish school here in Year 6.

For every child registered to receive Free School Meals, Ryelands will receive an additional sum of money to help support children in school, this is called the Pupil Premium Grant. We can use the money to provide additional services to support the learning of our most vulnerable children and also increase resources and opportunities for all children with an additional need who attend our school. In this section there are two reports showing how the money has been used over the last two academic years.

Pupil Premium Grant – What you’ve been saying…

A number of parents have completed questionnaires about the changes that have come about as a result of children receiving Pupil Premium Grant funded provision and support in school. Here’s what some of you have been saying…

We think that she has improved a lot. Her attitude and behaviour are much better at home and at school.
I think it benefits all the children.
Even when you are busy, he knows he can talk to you – you’re always available, he knows you listen to him.
He is happier coming to school. He is ready to settle to learn. School is providing Road Safety advice… less stress and a happier start to the day.
I attended phonics for parents – really helpful with helping children to read and write.

Thank you for your views. If any parent wishes to speak to us about the work of the school and how we can support your child’s learning even better please do not hesitate to pop in and speak to one of us.
