The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils eligible for Free School Meals in Reception to Year 6, or for children who are looked after or who have a parents serving in the armed forces.
At Elton Primary, the targeted and strategic use of pupil premium is based upon the following principles:
* We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our pupils.
* We ensure that any disadvantages or gaps in attainment are identified and addressed at the earliest stages of learning.
* We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
* In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. ï‚·
* We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.
* We reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium Funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes groups or individuals.
We provide a nurturing environment for all of our pupils. The pupil premium funding allows us to ensure that all children have enhanced experiences, academic, social and personal, that they may not receive otherwise.

Could your child be eligible for Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is extra money given to your child's school to spend on resources such as one to one tutoring, music lessons, extra curricular clubs and school trips. Funding is based on children registered for a free school meal, further reinforcing the importance of making sure all those who qualify are actually registered.

* Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
* Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
