The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to help close the gap between those disadvantaged students and their peers.
Greenacre allocates spending based upon National and Local research trends, as well as in school analysis. This is evaluated annually to maximise impact of spending and ensure it continues to be allocated to the correct areas.
An analysis of the previous years spending and detailed allocation of projected future spending is outlined within our Pupil Premium Strategy and Closing the Gap Analysis.
As of previous years, it is clear from the progress data set that there is no discernible gap between the achievement of pupils in receipt of PPG and others in Numeracy and Literacy. Differences in individual year groups are negligible and generally relates to only one or two pupils.
An intensive intervention structure now utilises data analysis to highlight individuals and in need of additional support and provide personalised intervention.
Nationally Pupils in receipt of PPG attend 2.9% less than their peers not in receipt of PPG funding. The continued employment of attendance officers means pupils in receipt of PPG attend better than their peers at Greenacre. (July 2018)
