Pupil Premium Spend

Pupil Premium Grant 2015/16

Use of Pupil Premium Grant 2015-2016 (Financial year: April 15–March 16)

Background

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children of service families and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Since 2012-13 this has also included pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. For example, it can be used for additional support in classes, for Early Intervention Support Worker time, for clubs run at the school or recommended by the school. However we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Since September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we have used the Pupil Premium. This ensures parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Pupil Premium and the extra support that they receive.

  • Provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise standards of achievement and attainment for these pupils.

  • Narrow the difference between the achievement of these pupils and the rest of their class.

  • Address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.
