Each year schools receive Pupil Premium Funding.
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is the name of the fund given directly to schools to support the pupils in two main areas:
- Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
- Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces
We are obliged to publish information about the amount of Pupil Premium the Academy receives each year, what it is spent on and how this impacts on raising standards.
This is awarded to the school at a rate of £1320 for every child who has been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years.
School is also awarded £2,300 for all Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority and Post-Looked-after (PLAC) Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order.
We will endeavour in 2019 - 20, to use the Pupil Premium funding to improve provision, accelerate progress and raise standards of attainment for as many pupils as possible.
