Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include children who are entitled to free schools meals, children looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support these groups of learners. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture their achievement.


For the academic year 2016/17, Rougham Primary received £22,440 in Pupil Premium funding. The spending has been allocated as follows:


  • 18 children eligible for pupil premium
  • Employed additional teaching assistants across a range of year groups to provide small group and one-to-one intervention. Specific programmes supporting early phonic development. One to one intervention for reading recovery. Training of teacher and two teaching assistants in deployment of Catch-Up Literacy (recommended from Education Endowment Fund). Specific booster support for key stage two children to achieve standard grade in mathematics.
  • Provide financial support for extended school residential visits, before and after school care.
