Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium, which was introduced in April 2011, is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after by the Local Authority continuously for more than six months.

The level of the premium increased to £600 per pupil in 2012-13. In 2017-2018 it stands at £935 per pupil.

The PPG per pupil for 2017 to 2018 is as follows:
 
Disadvantaged Pupils Pupil Premium Per Pupil
Pupils in year groups reception to Year 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £1,320
Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £935
Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English Local Authority £1,900
 
The Government decided that eligibility for the pupil Premium in 2012-13 would be extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years.

Our total funding for 2017-2018 is £49,555.

We have used our pupil premium in a variety of different ways and across a number of areas to support learning and access to the whole school curriculum and enrichment activities - these are outlined below:
  • Provision of Enrichment activities.
  • Additional staffing to create smaller groups particularly those focused on achievement in literacy and numeracy.
  • Supporting our students financially to access school journeys and trips
  • Provision of specialist tuition in musical tuition.
The Pupil Premium has enabled Greenvale to enhance our provision with more specialist knowledge and to allow the organisation of smaller groups for Maths and English. Thus it enables students to develop in terms of their academic ability and also their cultural and wider knowledge.

Year 7 Catch-Up Funding

In 2016 to 2017 funding is allocated to schools on the basis that they receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2015 to 2016, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort between the October 2015 and the October 2016 school censuses as follows:

(the number of year 7 pupils recorded on the October 2015 school census) divided by (the number of year 7 pupils recorded on the October 2016 school census) multiplied by the 2015 to 2016 allocation

Maintained schools may spend the grant for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school, or for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools and academies. They may also spend it on community facilities, for example services where the provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the school’s locality.
