Pupil Premium

 

 

 St Francis Catholic Primary School

Pupil Premium/Disadvantaged Grant – intended expenditure and priorities 2016-17

 

The pupil premium grant (PPG) provides funding for two areas:

·        raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential

·        supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

 

 

The pupil premium for 2016 to 2017 included pupils from Reception to Year 6 who were recorded in the January 2016 school census as known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) in any of the previous 6 years (i.e. since May 2010, known as Ever 6), as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2015.

The allocation for these children was £1320 per child and £1,900 for Looked-after Children (LAC) and those who had ceased to be looked after (post-LAC).  

The allocation for 2016-17 was £125,400.00

This allocation derived from 95 eligible pupils. This represented 22% of the pupils on roll in January 2016. 

This percentage has been steadily decreasing over the last three years.

 

Objectives for 2016-17

·        To raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils at risk of underachieving in Reading, Writing, Mathematics and GPS

·        To ensure progress and attainment of disadvantaged pupils in Reading, Writing, GPS and Mathematics

·        To provide opportunities that disadvantaged pupils would otherwise not have access to

·        To assist families who have no recourse to public funds and target those pupils for support

·        To ensure high attendance and good punctuality of disadvantaged pupils
