The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in Reception to year 6. For looked after children the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
We will ensure that the additional funding benefits the pupils who need it most and that is makes a significant impact on their education and social well-being.
The school will use PPG funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for funding and others.
The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and raise the standard of achievement for these pupils including those most able PPG pupils.
The funding will be used to narrow and close the achievement gap between these pupils and their peers.
Funding will be used to ensure learners have access to a range of social and cultural experiences that they may not otherwise access including school trips and after school clubs.
We have a strategy review each term and progress is carefully monitored with details recorded in the PPG statement as well as in assessment reviews led by the PPG lead teacher.
We focus on early intervention and support for all socially disadvantaged pupils, including our most able pupils.
The overwhelming majority of pupils eligible to Pupil Premium Grant funding will meet their targets, improve attendance and show an increase in clubs and sporting events.
