Pupil Premium

In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding.  This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals [FSM].  From 2012-13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

Free School Meals & Pupil Premium

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the office [in confidence] to register them.  Even if you do not wish them to have meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium Funding that may be used to help your child.

Impact Statement

Pupils in receipt of pupil premium at Tarporley CE Primary School are carefully monitored to ensure they make progress in comparison to their peers; both within their classroom, across the year group and nationally.
School attainment data shows are pupils are making progress.  However, in certain cases, additional intervention is provided if school feels progress is below national average.
Pupil premium children also benefit from extra curricular activities provided by school and outside agencies.  These opportunities ensure pupils benefit from the wider aspect of school life.

2020-2021 Strategy can be found below.


2019-2020 Strategy and Impact Report

Due to COVID-19 the strategy and impact of our PP children was affected. Please see full statement below to see the additional strategies put in place. 

Tarporley CE Primary School is approximately 12 miles from Chester. It is a one form entry school with 225 children on roll. Our school culture of 'Inspire. Achieve. Enjoy. Together.' begins with the needs of the child and reaches out to the family and to the future. We want Tarporley Church of England Primary School to be a place where we all inspire a love of learning and respect for all, where individuals are encouraged to reach their full potential.

We currently have 22 pupil premium children on roll; this is 9.7% of the school.

At Tarporley CE Primary School we adopt a tiered approach to Pupil Premium spending. This consists of ensuring quality teaching is happening in every class and that every teacher is supported to keep improving. Targeted academic support will be given to children where necessary. A wide-range of other strategies will be given to individual children to meet their needs.


Please find full strategy and impact statement below.
