Pupil Premium

The Government has allocated a specific “Pupil Premium Grant” (PPG) to every school. This is additional funding which is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point over the last six years; children who have been “looked after” for more than six months, or children of service personnel.

The Pupil Premium is aimed at addressing the current underlying inequalities that exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent peers.

The DFE has given us the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as we see fit, based on the knowledge of our pupils’ needs.

Our allocation for 2017-18 is £48,980.

Our focus for these pupils is to improve attainment, ensure challenging progress to close the gap and overcome disadvantage.

Our Pupil Premium strategy has been informed by the following evidence:

• Analysis of school progress and attainment data

• Our self-evaluation process including staff, governor, parent and student feedback

• Review and evaluation of the 2015 - 16 and 2016-17 Pupil Premium Spending Strategies

• Research and reading including Pupil Premium research papers and the 7 building blocks of success DfE document (2015)

• Ofsted Review (April 2017)

• Good practice visits to local and regional schools

The main identified barriers to making progress to be addressed by this strategy are:

  1. Support provided above and beyond the school day
  2. Understanding and supporting pupils with additional needs
  3. Effective and instant feedback to and with pupils in relation to their learning as well as future progress
  4. Pupils Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH)
