Each year in our budget we receive Pupil Premium Funding. In 2017-18 it has been awarded to the school at a rate below:

It is for the school and its Governors to decide how PPG is spent, as we are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils in school to help to ‘narrow the gaps’ and to support pupils making good progress throughout the school. As a school we are very conscientious of our duty to spend the PPG to impact on the targeted pupils in such a way that it does not openly identify them or discriminate against others. Therefore Pupil Premium spending primarily designed to impact on PPG pupils are opened to all pupils who are deemed to have the same needs. Hence in addition to direct spending on PPG pupils much of this spending has also directly or indirectly impacted positively on other children’s attainment and pastoral care.

 

 

Summary and Objectives of Pupil Premium Spending

The school aims to ensure that the Pupil Premium funding:

  • Facilitates all pupils’ access to education and the curriculum
  • Funds additional support and intervention programmes for groups and individuals
  • Supports children to take up additional opportunities, such as (residential) visits
  • Ensures high quality provision for our pupils
  • Enables all children, regardless of their financial situation, to reach their potential

 

This is achieved through the following strategies and approaches:

  • High quality first teaching in small groups, providing individual support for all pupils from the start
  • Individual or small group tuition in language for pupils identified as falling behind
  • Funding allocated towards minibus cost to ensure access to school and improved attendance
  • Funding to support specific learning difficulties, through training, software and sharing expertise.
  • A broad range of curriculum enrichment including high quality music and arts provision (artists projects and involvement and visits to workshops and performances)
