Pupil Premium Grant

Information for parents/carers  

The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at narrowing the gap in attainment.

In 2015 - 2016, funding was calculated on the basis of £600 for each pupil who has been eligible for free school meals in the past six years and for looked after children in care for more than six months. There is a related Service premium of £250 for children of families in the armed forces. 

The funding is provided to schools which decide how best to spend this according to needs. 

For the academic year 2015 – 2016 the school received £22,822 of Pupil Premium Grant. The funding was used to increase the level of teaching assistant support within the school. Some of the funding was also used to ensure pupils accessed residential trips and out of school activities.

Impact of PPG Allocation 2015/2016

All pupils receiving allocation made progress at least in line with similar pupils at School. In particular the pupils whose Communication and Literacy skills were being targeted made progress in other areas of curriculum and social development over the course of the year.

By the end of the year progress towards outstanding targets in maths and English of all pupils in receipt of PPG was Outstanding. Targets are set following DfE Progression guidance, CASPA and our own historical data.

 A detailed analysis of the impact has been carried out by the Senior Leadership team and reported to governors.
