Talbot House Pupil Premium

The Department for Education (DfE) provides additional funding, known as Pupil

Premium, in order that specific groups of pupils aged between 5 and 16 years, who may be disadvantaged by virtue of their family circumstances, can be supported in their progress and attainment. Pupil Premium falls into three categories:


  • Deprivation Pupil Premium

  • Looked After Pupil Premium

  • Service Children Premium



The Pupil Premium funding is not necessarily intended to be specifically allocated to individual pupils and schools have the freedom to decide how it can best be spent on eligible pupils. The impact of individual sums may be limited. Therefore at Talbot House,

in common with many schools, we have pooled the allocated monies to maximise the impact on the pupils’ progress and attainment.


2017 - 2018 

This academic year we have received £600 pupil premium funding from one local authority. This was for the individual needs of two of our LAC. The money was spent on a literacy program.


2016 - 2017 

This academic year we have received £860 pupil premium funding from two authorities. This was for the individual needs of two of our LAC. The money will be spent on social enrichment programs including horse riding and a dyslexia reading program.

2015 - 2016

Last year (2015-16), we received £2200 in pupil premium funding from one authority.

This money was for the individual needs of one of our LAC, providing extra tutoring and books to help with their studies.


The measure of its impact is illustrated through the Boxall profile, Emotional literacy reports and our other unique social modification systems.
