Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low income families and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been continuously looked after for at least 6 months (LAC) the school receives an amount per head within their budget.


Stanhope Primary School is committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of children and strives to diminish any gaps. At Stanhope we actively promote equality of opportunity for all staff, governors, pupils and parents, creating an outstanding community where all can succeed.


We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. These are monitored and evaluated robustly and on a regular basis. In depth analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress of all pupils. Strong leadership systems ensure that Pupil Premium funding has the necessary impact.


Stanhope Primary School, the grant is spent in a variety of ways.   The range of provision includes: 

  • Facilitating pupils’ access to education
  • Facilitating pupils' access to broader curriculum opportunities
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities
  • Alternative support and intervention 

All matters relating to the Pupil Premium are reported back to the Governors, ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of spending. For 2018 to 2019, the school will receive £1320 per primary pupil who is currently eligible for free school meals (FSM) or has been eligible for FSM in the past 6 years (FSM ‘Ever 6’).
