The Wren School, Reading, Berks: Pupil Premium

School Information

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in 2011 to assist schools in addressing the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers.

Schools decide how the allocated pupil premium funding should be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for these learners.

All schools have been allocated additional funding to work with learners who have been registered for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, children of service personnel and those who are adopted. The intended effect of this funding it to accelerate progress, raise attainment and support the learners in participation of activities in the wider curriculum. Schools decide how the allocated pupil premium funding should be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for these learners. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being allocated and the impact of any additional support or provision.
We have used the Pupil Premium funding to support learners to maximise their attainment in school.

At The Wren School we have used the Pupil Premium funding to implement a wide range of strategies and support learners to maximise their attainment in school and reach their potential. Some examples of how the pupil premium funding has been used are:

  • To provide peripatetic music lessons;
  • To subsidise the cost of attendance on school trips;
  • To enable free access to after school clubs;
  • To purchase items of school uniform;
  • To provide access to ICT facilities.
