Pupil Premium Statement

Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the past 6 years, a smaller amount allocated according to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care).

Below we have outlined the main barriers to future attainment for pupils receiving the Pupil Premium Grant at Trinity.

Main barriers:


A significant number of children receiving the grant have overlapping additional needs. This effects their attainment and means they require extra support.


Social and emotional difficulties for a small group of children mean they require additional support. This effects their attitude towards learning and therefore their attention and concentration in class.


Oral language skills are lower for children eligible for PP when entering reception than other pupils. This slows reading progress in subsequent years.


 A high proportion of parents are unfamiliar with the education system in the UK. Therefore they need guidance and support on how to support their children at home.


 A high proportion of children have narrow life experiences outside of school.


There is a higher proportion of PP children who are persistently absent than non-PP children
