Pupil Premium

Notes on the Pupil Premium Grant from the DfE.

  • The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
  • The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who  have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, for children who have been “looked after” continuously for more than six months and also for children of service personnel.
  •  In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
  • 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 pupils from low-income families. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium. From September 2012, schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.
  • If you think your child may be entitled to Pupil Premium Funding please contact the office on 01225 702544 or email Kathryn Clark on kclark@shaw.wilts.sch.uk



In the 2016 – 17 Academic year we had 18 children receiving the Pupil Premium Grant.  This academic year we have 16 children.  Please read our Pupil Premium Strategy to see how we spent last years money and the impact this had and how we intend to spend the grant this year.

Sports Grant

In previous years, the PE and Sports Premium has enabled us to employ a specialist PE teacher, Mrs Draper, to work with children, Teachers and Teaching Assistants in Year 1 to Year 6. This has enabled both staff and children to develop their skills in a variety of sports activities. We have also used the money to purchase many new resources and equipment for teachers and children to use in PE sessions and at lunchtimes, as well as provide a free after school sports club. We anticipate receiving £17,750 in the 2017-18 academic year and hope to continue this programme of building a rich and varied PE curriculum as well as looking for further ways of improving PE and Sport provision at Shaw. For example, we plan to use our additional funding to run a Sports Leader programme for the older children, who will then guide and train our younger pupils. We have also been able to purchase an online and interactive Dance & PE resource for all of our classes to use.

For more information on the impact of the PE grant, please see the Sport page within the 'Our Learning' menu.


The school follows the Wiltshire County Council policy for admissions with regard to pupils with SEN and disabilities, a copy of which can be found here.

Our Accessibility Plan can be found with our other Policies, in the 'For Parents' menu.
