Pupil Premium  


 

Pupil Premium 2017/18

The Purpose of Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools with pupils on roll in January, who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been at any time in the previous six years, as well as 'Service children' and (CIC) children in care. Schools have the freedom to spend the funding in ways that will provide the best support for the raising the attainment of those pupils.

In 2012/13 the total amount of PPG the school received was £3615 

In 2013/14 the total amount of PPG the school received was £7800

In 2014/2015 the total amount of PPG the school received was £12,300

In 2015/16 the total amount of PPG the school received was £12,687.

In 2016/17 the total amount of PPG the school received was £12,180.

In 2017/18 the total amount of PPG the school receive is £10,400

                                                                                                                                                      
Principles

At Stocks Green we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils by:

  • Making appropriate provision for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups and for those who may be disadvantaged, to ensure that their needs are accurately assessed and met.
  • Recognising that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • Recognising that not all socially disadvantaged pupils are registered or qualify for free school meals. 
  •  It may be the case that not all children receiving free school meals will receive Pupil Premium interventions at any one time.

Pupil premium funding is allocated following an analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals. It runs from April to April for the Financial Year not the Academic Year.

The PPG per pupil for 2016 to 2017 is as follows:

Disadvantaged pupils

Pupil premium per pupil

These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.

Reporting


It will be the responsibility of the Headteacher or Inclusion Team to produce regular reports for the Governing Body outlining the following:
• The progress made towards narrowing the gap, by year group, for socially disadvantaged pupils.
• An outline of the provision that was made since the last meeting.
• An evaluation of the cost effectiveness, in terms of the progress made by the pupils receiving a particular provision, when compared with other forms of support.
• The Governors of the school will ensure that there is an annual statement on how the Pupil Premium funding has been used to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.

Appeals
Any appeals against this policy will be through the school official complaints procedure.
