Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure

Overview

The Pupil Premium is paid by means of a specific grant based upon school census figures for pupils registered for Free School Meals. In addition a grant is also received for looked after children and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

The pupil premium is additional to the main school funding and it will be used by the school to address any underlying inequalities or underachievement for the children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches those pupils who need it most.

Objectives for Pupil Premium in this School

  • The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils
  • The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and that of the rest of the school
  • We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it make a significant impact upon their educational achievement and progress as well as an impact upon their own personal development and well-being.

School Policy

The Headteacher and Governors have agreed a policy for Pupil Premium to guide the use of funds and to ensure that that it represents value for money

Accountability

The Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put in place for Pupil Premium and report to the Governing Body on its progress and impact.

Measuring the impact of PPG Spending

  • All students to obtain a grade 4 or above (equivalent to a C grade) or above in Mathematics and English at GCSE Level
  • Students to achieve in line with or above their target grades in GCSE examinations
  • Students in year 7 – 11 have been identified for intervention to ensure they meet the expected levels of progress. Support will be put in place for students not on track to achieve in line with expected levels.
  • Students/parents will be supported to ensure that attendance remains above the statutory minimum of 95%
