Pupil Premium

Allocation of Pupil Premium & Pupil Premium Plus 2018/19

Pupil Premium Universal

All pupils referred to EAP are vulnerable and therefore require educational provision as an alternative to a mainstream setting. They are also considered to have additional needs or an Education Health and Care Plan predominantly for SEMH as outlined in the SEN Code of Practice. Therefore, EAP has agreed that all pupils qualify for support from the Pupil Premium Grant and considers it a universal level of support. If a child reintegrates to High School EAP recommends that Pupil Premium support is in place.

The service allocated resource for Pupil Premium is £45,000
