Pupil Premium is funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years or have been in care for 6 months or longer.
In 2020 to 2021 financial year, schools receive £1,345 per primary school age pupil or £955 per secondary age pupil. The level of funding for each looked-after-child is £2,345.
Within an alternative provision school such as Horizon School it is very difficult to provide a completely accurate of the level of PPG to be allocated as this figure can fluctuate throughout the year dependent on students who are on roll in the school. In the case of Dual Registered pupils, we invoice the main school on a termly basis.
In 2019/20 we received a total of £24072.25 and in in 2020/21 we received £41692.50
Funding will be used in 2021/22 to Enhance the Quality of Education, Strengthen diagnosis and interventions to meet specific needs of those with SEND and Enhance Subject Specific Knowledge through Continuing Professional Development for staff.
