Purpose

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 peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

Accountability

The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:

the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers
the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium
the reports for parents that schools have to publish online
How schools present the information in their online statement is a matter for each school. There is certain information that must be in the report: the school’s pupil premium allocation in respect of the current academic year; details of how it is intended that the allocation will be spent; details of how the previous academic year’s allocation was spent, and the impact of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school, in respect of whom grant funding was allocated.

Funding

In most cases the pupil premium is paid direct to schools, allocated to them for every pupil who receives free school meals. Schools decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

Local authorities are responsible for looked after children and make payments to schools and academies where an eligible looked after child is on roll.

PPG was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

The PPG is paid to the school for pupils recorded on the January 2012 School Census who were:
Eligible and receiving Free School Meals (FSM); for pupils who have been eligible and receiving FSM on any of the termly censuses since Summer 2006, including the January 2012 School Census, known as “Ever 6 FSM” and
Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. (LAC)
Children who have been recorded as Service pupils

Nature of support ongoing 2012/13

23% of pupils in mainstream school are in receipt of Pupil Premium Grant.
8% of this group have special educational needs and are being monitored by the SENDCo. The Pupil Premium Grant funding is used effectively to :

Implement targeted interventions at named children and their specific needs and priorities leading to a positive impact on pupil progress and standards.

Run a nurture facility, „Rainbow Centre‟ for KS1 and KS2.

Lunchtime provision in the form of „Penguins‟ (KS1) and the „Jungle Room‟ (KS2) which addresses children‟s learning, behaviour, emotional and social needs.

„Camo club‟, which allows service children and their friends time to communicate with deployed parents /carers or friends who have moved.

An extended Special Educational Needs provision which includes
A Lead SEND Co-ordinator who also has responsibility for Key Stage 1/ Early Years Foundation Stage.

A Key Stage 2 SEND Co-ordinator
A number of SEND support assistants.
A morning of SBAT (School based additional teaching) for Early Years. Life Skills Programme

Measuring the impact of PPG spending

Pupil Progress is measured throughout the year based on National Curriculum Levels achieved. This is then used to calculate progress using a points system.
