Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

posted 13 Jan 2015, 03:49 by cgreene@offasmeadacademy.org

The Pupil and Service Premium is not ring-fenced and schools are free to spend it as they wish to improve pupils’ attainment.

PPG provides funding for two policies:

• Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers; and

• Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

The PPG per pupil for 2014-2015 is as follows:

Pupils in Year Groups R to 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £1,300

Looked After Children (LAC) £1,900

Children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 1 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order £1,900

Service children Pupils in Year Groups R to 11 recorded as Ever 4 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence £300

 OFSTED (June 2014) stated- The academy uses the pupil premium funding effectively to provide additional teaching assistants and a wide range of support activities for eligible pupils. In 2013, the attainment of Year 6 pupils supported by the pupil premium was the equivalent of seven terms ahead of their classmates in reading, writing and mathematics. Currently, the vast majority of eligible pupils are making good progress. The school is working successfully to make sure that eligible pupils achieve at least as well as their classmates in other year groups.

This year, we have continued to spend PPG on 1:1 tuition, Therapy sessions, Nurture, online tuition and targeted support for reading/ spelling, amongst other things (see the back of this pack for more details). We have also used PPG to fund visitors to the Academy to help enrich the curriculum, including Artists and Science workshops and help to cover costs for transport on trips. Our estimated amount is£39,073
