Those eligible for this funding are: pupils recorded in the January 2016 school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) in any of the previous 6 years (ie since summer 2010), as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2016.

Ever 5 Service Child Funding

The service premium is designed to support children with parents serving in the regular British armed forces. Schools will receive £300 for each eligible pupil.

Pupils attract the premium if they meet the following criteria:

* one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces

*one of their parents served in the regular armed forces in the last 4 years

* one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil is in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)


Early Years Pupil Premium Funding

In addition to this, for 2016-2017 the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) will be given to early years providers who are delivering the funding entitlement for 3- and 4-year-olds. The funding equates to up to £300 extra per year for each disadvantaged child who meets the eligibility criteria.


In April 2016, Windy Nook Primary School received approximately £76,360 for Pupil Premium. This is based on 54 pupils (18% of pupils).


In this academic year, we are using our Pupil Premium

  • to reduce class sizes in Years 1 and 2 and 5 and 6 for Maths and English teaching
  • to deliver high quality Maths and English interventions via TA and / or Teacher support
  • to run ICT and teacher led lunchtime and after school Maths and English interventions
  • for close monitoring and support for attendance issues in order to raise attainment.
  • for relevant CPD, which will enable staff to target eligible pupils for intervention groups to provide high-impact learning
  • to subsidise visits and clubs



All pupils, including those eligible for Pupil Premium, at Windy Nook Primary School are tracked closely. Pupils are tracked as part of our termly, whole-school tracking to ensure they are making at least expected progress. If progress is no at least expected, pupils are identified for intervention to move their learning forward. Pupils eligible for Pupil Premium who are progressing and attaining well are identified, and resources are purchases to help the teacher to extend the child’s learning.

The impact of the interventions will be reviewed at the end of the academic year 2016-2017.
