Pupil Premium

Cheadle Primary School is committed to demonstrating exceptional practice in our aspiration for the attainment of all pupils regardless of their circumstances to reach their true potential.

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is government funding which is allocated to schools for children who are, or have been in the past 6 years, eligible for free school meals (FSM), service children, adopted children and any child who has been looked after by the local authority.

You will remember the letters we have sent to you over the past few years encouraging you to apply for free school meals even if you do not want your child to have a school lunch. The reason we have done this is to ensure that our school receives the maximum amount of funding possible. In the expenditure reports you can see how we have used the money to support the children and raise standards for all the pupils at Cheadle Primary.

For the year 2015/2016 the school received a total of £138,100, the school now receives £1,320 for every child who is in receipt of the Pupil Premium grant. You can see how important it is that we access this money so that we can continue to focus on raising the achievement of all the pupils at our school. We are passionate about our children achieving the highest academic standards in order to prepare them well for the next stage of their educational journey.

Each year we will publish a report explaining how we are planning to spend the money, what our main focus is and what the impact of the support has been. You will also be able to see the impact of this money as it supports our continued efforts to raise standards and help the children become confident and well-rounded individuals.

The school has a Pupil Premium Policy which has been approved by the Governing Body and is reviewed regularly
