Pupil Premium Allocation

‚ÄčPupil Premium Allocation 2017-2018

The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a specific grant allocated by the government which is based on the school census figures for pupils registered as being eligible for the funding. It is up to the school to decide how the grant is spent but the outcome of spending the grant needs to be an additional provision made for the identified individuals. This year, 2017-2018, school received £538,718.00 as we have 55% of children entitled to Pupil Premium and we have 8 looked After Children (LAC) who have an entitlement to Pupil Premium.

Our objectives : the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) will be used to provide additional educational support which will improve the progress and raise the standard of attainment for disadvantaged pupils. In 2016-2017 we were able to track and monitor the attainment gap between pupil premium and non-pupil premium children. This allowed us to see which interventions worked well and helped our children to progress and have significant impact in their education. From this knowledge we have planned the spend for 2017-2018 as follows:
