Pupil Premium And Other Grant Funding

Pupil Premium And Other Grant Funding

The Learning Centres receive additional statutory finding which is deployed effectively across school to increase engagement in learning and raise attainment and outcomes for pupils.

 Pupil Premium Grant (£95,970 in 2016/17) is used to enhance participation in learning and maximise opportunities for success. It funds a number of actions and activities which benefit all pupils. These include:

  • Free breakfast and breaktime food for ALL pupils at all three Centres

  • Initial assessment activities and personalised interventions

  • An Attendance and Welfare Officer

  • A Progression Co-ordinator at KS4

 Additional funding for Looked After Children is used effectively to enhance outcomes for this cohort of pupils and is agreed, and monitored individually, through Personal Education Planning meetings. Examples include: purchase of additional specialist equipment for pupils with additional needs, provision of additional individual tuition and funding for participation in enrichment activities.

 Primary PE and Sports Premium (£6,499.20 in 2016/17) has been used to enable pupils to access off site activities such as a sailing course at Ferry Meadows, participate in regional sports activities with other schools and purchase team kit and sports equipment for use in school. A small element of it has also supported the development of a cross phase Sports Leaders programme with our KS4 pupils
