Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium Grant Allocation

Ofsted 2014 said “the achievement of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is good because the school promotes equality and tackles discrimination effectively. The additional funding is used successfully for a wide range of additional sessions to close the gap between eligible pupils and the others.  The school’s information on the progress of eligible pupils currently at the school shows that they make similar good progress to the others.”

Schools receive a Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) to support looked-after children and/or children who are currently in receipt of free school meals or have been entitled over the last 6 years.

Pupil premium Plan for 2017- 2018

For the current academic year, the school has been allocated a pupil premium grant of £25660.

Summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school:

  • 25% attendance / punctuality, below school average
  • 28% have additional education needs
  • 25% have English as an additional language
  • 20% have joined the school after reception.
  • 40% need some support with homework.

 

The Grant is to be used to support children in targeted intervention groups to support language development, literacy and numeracy skills. 

Individual grants to enable the children to participate in school life:

  • Therapeutic play specialist sessions, to build resilience.
  • all day trips to provide greater understanding British culture;
  • additional sports clubs to promote better physical, mental health and resilience. 
  • to provide a grant for the year 6 residential trip.
  • the school choir to develop individuals musically in addition to furthering qualities such as cooperation. 
  • sport and day to day school life.
  • access to ICT for homework help.
  • entitlement to a free school meal

 

The impact of the pupil premium will be measured against pupil achievement and their ability to participate in school activities such as PE and extra-curricular activities.
