Pupil Premium


What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England with the purpose of raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap between them and their peers. In the 2016 - 2017 financial year, schools will receive £1,320 for pupils in Reception to Year 6, who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.


Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of either adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order.


At Walsall Wood School we endeavour to provide the best education for every pupil in all Curriculum areas. We believe that high quality teaching, targeted intervention and high levels of confidence and enthusiasm contribute to all pupils achieving their potential. We have used our funding in the following ways:

  • Employing ‘expert’ teachers to enhance the delivery of subject areas;
  • Deploying staff to deliver high quality interventions for individuals or groups of children;
  • Providing additional opportunities to enhance the taught Curriculum through out of school and in school visits;
  • Providing relevant staff training that benefits the pupils.

What is Early Years Pupil Premium?

This is additional funding aimed at supporting disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds. The money should be used by Early Years providers to improve the quality of education for these vulnerable children.
