Pupil Premium Spending
At our school, we have high expectations of ALL students and intent for every child to achieve highly regardless of their needs or background. We draw on research evidence, such as the Education Endowment Foundation’s , and evidence from our own experience to allocate funding to interventions that are most likely to maximise achievement.
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011 and provides funding for:
- Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential.
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional to the main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the students who need it most.
In addition to this, every child registered for Pupil Premium is also eligible for free school meals as well as other benefits.
Your child can register if you receive any of the following:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (as long as you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and you don't get more than £16,190 a year)
- Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
- Universal Credit (with annual earned income of no more than £7,400 after tax and not including any benefits you get)
Due to the current Coronavirus situation, the government has also made available funding to schools to support pupils who were affected educationally by the lockdown. For this, we have produced the following strategy.
