Pupil Premium


Our Vision

At Dallam Primary School we have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We are determined that every child should be given the chance to realise their full potential and make good progress, irrespective of their background. We want all of our children to be resilient and ambitious so that they are able to seize every positive opportunity that presents itself to them. As a school we recognise the impact that factors of deprivation can have on a child's progress and attainment within school and are fully committed to overcome any barriers presented in order to accelerate progress of individuals and ensure that each child can fulfil their true potential and compete favourably with their peers as they move on to the next stage of their education.

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil premium is additional funding, from the government, provided to schools for supporting pupils from low income families to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers.

The premium is provided to enable schools to ‘close the gap’ in attainment. In the 2021-2022 financial year, schools will receive:

  • £1,345 for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • £2,345 for each looked after pupil who meets specified criteria
  • £310 for each pupil aged 4 and over in year groups reception to year 11 who is either Ever 6 service child FTE or in receipt of pensions under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)
