Important School Information
What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is funding given to schools to help close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. Pupil Premium Grant is primarily aimed at pupils who are from low-income families and are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). This category now includes any child that has been registered for FSM in the past 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6’ FSM). This funding also covers Children Looked After (CLA), children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order. Schools also receive a service premium for pupils whose parents either serve in the armed forces or are in receipt of a child pension from the ministry of Defence.
Careful analysis including: internal and external pupil- level data, historical attainment and progress rates is undertaken on an annual basis to ensure that the Pupil Premium Grant is used to maximum effect.
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. It reports directly to Parliament and is both independent and impartial. By law it must inspect schools with the aim of providing information to parents, to promote improvement and to hold schools to account.
P.E. & Sport Premium Information
Schools receive P.E. and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.
In most cases, the January school census is used to determine how many pupils are at the school.
