Welcome back, we hope you had a relaxing Easter break. Just a reminder that class and Y6 leaver photographs are on Friday of this week.

Pupil Premium

The government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities in outcomes between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel. At Merstham we are committed to channelling our funding to ensure the best possible outcomes for eligible children and we do this in a number of ways.

To raise attainment for Pupil Premium children we have:

  • Teacher led interventions to support children under achieving
  • Teacher led writing and mathematics workshops to boost achievement
  • Targeted group work by trained Teaching Assistants
  • Subsidised enrichment clubs
  • Subsidised residential school trips

For more details view our Pupil-Premium-Strategy-for-2018-2019.pdf and also see our Review-of-Pupil-Premium-Strategy-for-2017-2018.pdf for information about last academic year.

As a result of focused spending the vast majority of our children eligible for pupil premium are now making good or better progress. Over time the gap in attainment between pupils eligible for funding and those that are not is narrowing: Point Score difference for each year group
