Shaugh Prior Primary School

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) Annual Report 2015/16

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)
What is PPG?
  1. pupil premium for 2015-16 was allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils that are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) as recorded on the January 2015 School Census. Funding was also available to children in care (who have been were looked after continuously for at least six months) and to children whose parents are in the Armed Forces.

Why has PPG been introduced? The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The Department for Education urges schools and local authorities to encourage parents to register their child as eligible for FSM so that each school receives their maximum Pupil Premium entitlement.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium. From September 2012, schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.

During 2014/15 we used the Pupil Premium Grant in the following ways:
 

 

  • To fund an additional TA to work specifically with a vulnerable child who receives the grant.
  • To fund additional hours for teaching assistant support to ensure the correct proportion of support was given to vulnerable pupils
  • To pay for any socially disadvantaged pupils to access small group support through 1:1 or small group tuition
  • To purchase materials/resources for specific use with Vulnerable pupils /socially disadvantaged pupils
  • We have also subsidised many school trips and will continue to do so this year. Our school values life experiences and our staff know how much the children gain from visits to aid their learning

 

 

 

Measurement and Evidence of Impact of PPG Spending:
  • 50% children receiving the grant have made progress above the national
  • Of that 50% half of the children made better than expected progress.
  • By the end of year 6 in 2015 the children in receipt of free school meals had made progress in line with those nationally .
  • The gap between the FSM group and the non FSM group is narrowing.
