Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant


Rosehill School receives an additional allowance over and above its budget to help address the lower levels of achievement experienced by children who are disadvantaged in some way. This is called the Pupil Premium (PP) and is in addition to main school funding. This funding is allocated straight to the school and is clearly identifiable in our budget. The premium awarded is in addition to any funding the pupil may receive for their special educational needs. PP is awarded for every pupil who:


  • is in receipt of a Free School Meal in the current year;
  • has been in receipt of a Free School Meal in the previous six years (Ever 6 FSM);
  • has been Looked After by the local authority continuously for the past six months;
  • is a child in a Services Family


Rosehill School has worked very hard to ensure that all pupils achieve as much as they are able. To ensure this has maximum effect our Governing body fully examine data and impact of this additional funding upon progress made over time by our Pupil Premium learners. Through this scrutiny Governors are able to provide challenge in regards to the impact this further funding provides, determine clear routes of accountability for the additional funds the school receives and support the rationale behind the allocation of PP funding.


Through this on-going scrutiny the Governors of the school can currently detail that there are no groups of pupils who are performing less well or better than any other group. This scrutiny will continue within our school self-evaluation framework and inform our impact report on PP expenditure produced each year.


The Head Teacher provides the Governors of the school with an annual statement prepared for parents on how the PP funding will be/has been spent (below); this task will be carried out within the requirements published by the Department for Education.


The spending of the pupil premium grant is reviewed on an annual basis, with the next school review taking place in April 2020.
