Keelman’s Way School

Pupil Premium and Sports Grant

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

What is PPG

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

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.

During 2012/13 we used the Pupil Premium Grant in the following ways:

? To offer intensive support to our Year 7 groups where a significant number of pupils were eligible for the pupils premium or were looked after children

? To offer additional support and expertise for our pupils who have profound and multiple learning difficulties who required focused intervention and support from staff with considerable expertise.

? To part fund attendance at school clubs and residential for qualifying pupils who would otherwise be unable to attend

Measurement and Evidence of Impact of PPG Spending:

? All pupils made good progress academically and in social interactions as a result

? The progress FSM matches non FSM pupils
