Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
What is Pupil Premium Funding?
Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium fund is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of children who are entitled to Free School Meals.
The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates

Pupil Premium at Ightenhill Primary School
The Government believes school leaders are best placed to assess their pupils’ needs and use the funding to improve attainment, drawing on evidence of effective practice. It is up to school leaders to decide how to spend the pupil premium.
Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when schools use a tiered approach. Therefore at Ightenhill we focus on:
Our range of targeted strategies are reviewed regularly by Senior Leaders and Governors. Strategies are evidence based and we take into account national research as well as reviewing approaches that have been used in school to determine whether they have been effective for our children or not. This academic year, the school has been allocated additional funding which includes the Recovery Premium Funding, aimed at supporting identified pupils who's education has been affected by the pandemic.
Our in-school champions are:
Mrs M Lewis (COG / Pupil Premium governor)
Mrs K Dunderdale (DHT/ Pupil Premium champion)
