Pupil Premium

Warren Wood Primary Academy Pupil Premium Report Final

Warren Wood Primary Academy PE Expenditure


The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.

In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium allocation is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done.


In the 2016/17 financial year Warren Wood Primary Academy will receive £126,040 in Pupil Premium funding.

Context of School

Warren Wood Primary Academy is larger than the average-sized primary school. A high proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in the care of the local authority, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those from service families. There are currently no pupils from service families in the school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs who are supported at school action is below the national average, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above the national average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds and those who speak English as an additional language is below the national average. The school has a specially resourced provision for 34 pupils with speech and language difficulties.
