Pupil Premium is a sum of money allocated to schools to close the attainment gap between those eligible for free school meals and their wealthier peers.
Disadvantaged pupils are pupils that have been recorded as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last
six years (Ever 6 FSM) or pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for more than six months by the local authority.
Children from households with lower incomes may be entitled to free school meals. Families who are currently paying for school meals will save around £400 a year for each primary school child if they are entitled to free school meals and Barrington School has a system which means it is impossible for other pupils to know who is receiving free school meals. School children who are eligible for free school meals are entitled to a two course meal worth £2.25 every day at primary school. Children who are entitled to free school meals might also qualify for help with transport cost

When you apply for free school meals, you will also allow your school to receive Pupil Premium - extra money to support children from families on lower incomes, please apply for free school meals.
Pupil Premium 2016-17
In 2016-2017, Barrington Primary will be allocated £17,460 of funding to support pupils who are eligible for pupil premium grant (PPG).
Analysis of the challenges that face our children who are eligible for pupil premium reveals that most of them have complex and changing home situations in which the majority of the child care responsibility falls on a single parent.
Following the analysis of what worked during 2015-16 and the current needs of the children with pupil premium funding we are planning to use the funding in the following ways during 2016-17:
We intend to use this to support our children with high quality teaching and training for teachers, priority reading support and small group and individual pre and post teaching to support pupils in their academic development.
We also run a variety of interventions across the school to support pupil’s social skills and their wellbeing, this includes funding for class outings and supporting the cost of access to extended sports provsion after school.
In addition to the focused teaching interventions provided to pupils listed here, we also use teaching approaches which close the gap in attainment outlined below.
