The Spending of the Pupil Premium Grant at Naburn CE Primary School

The Pupil Premium Grant is a sum of money allocated to schools to ensure that all children have an equal chance to succeed in schools. An amount is allocated for children eligible for free school meals, who are from service families and those that are in Local Authority Care.

The free school meal children are either registered now or have been registered in the past 6 years for free school meals. The current funding allocation is £1,320 per pupil for free school meal pupils and children in Local Authority care.

The more children registered for free school meals, the more pupil premium… and the more funding available to ensure that these children make good progress.

*Parents are urged to register for a free school meal if they are eligible. You can find out more about Free School Meals and the Pupil Premium Grant here, on the City of York Council website, including information about how to apply

Schools are expected to explain what they have received and how the money was used.  You can also find our Pupil Premium Policy on the Policies Page of this website.

Pupil Premium 2022-2023


Our catchment and intake is unique in so many ways. A substantial number of our children come from Traveller backgrounds. We also have a mix of village children who come from families with high educational aspirations, who are very well supported at home.


As a consequence of this blend, post Ofsted inspection, we looked to use our Pupil Premium Funding to benefit all learners by keeping class sizes small and Pupil to Teacher ratios as good as could be afforded. This enabled us to cater for our more vulnerable groups in school and ensure that they were getting exceptional ‘quality first’ classroom teaching in the Core Subjects. Not only that, but this ensured that all children were challenged according to their ability and all learning groups are beginning to flourish.

Pupil Premium funding is reviewed and paid at key census points throughout the year and it is difficult to confirm the exact funding available until the end of the year, but there was a significant drop in the grant this year due to mobility. We review this strategy termly and update this information at the end of the academic year, to include details of the impact of our actions.

The total amount was £2690.  

As last year, we measured impact through monitoring progress in Reading, Writing and Maths. This was discussed regularly at our Teaching and Learning Committee meetings. The progress of pupils is discussed at our regular Pupil Progress meetings with teachers, which are a central part of our Performance Review structures in school.

*Due to the small number of children at Naburn CE Primary who qualify for this grant, published details (such as main barriers to achievement) are kept as general as possible in order to ensure confidentiality.
