Pupil premium grant expenditure report 2011/12 & 2012/13

What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011 and paid to local authorities by means of a specific grant based on January 2011 school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in reception to Year 11.  For looked after children the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns.

The Pupil Premium is allocated on the basis of the number of children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.  The Government decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium in 2012-13 should be extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years.

The level of the premium in 2011-12 was £488 per pupil for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) and for pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for six months.  It increased to £623 per pupil in 2012-13.

Funding is allocated on the basis of a financial year from April to April, but reporting relates to spending for each academic year.

The Use of the Pupil Premium at Rickmansworth Park JMI School
We use the support to fund or part fund both existing provision for children with additional needs and also some specific activity targeted at those children in receipt of the Pupil Premium.  This is focused on those children who need it most, for example, whose academic performance is in need of a boost or who need support to remove obstacles to being successful learners, such as financial help for music tuition or school trips.

How will we demonstrate the Impact of the Funding?
The impact of the PPG will be considered in terms of the academic performance of groups of children to whom the school decides to apply PPG funded additional measures.

Where appropriate, evaluation may also focus on pupil attributes such as: social and emotional development. self-confidence, self esteem, awareness of themselves as a learner, personal organisation.  These are measured through pupil and parent feedback and/or observation as necessary.

Impact 2011/12
Raiseonline (ROL) shows that the year one phonic screening test showed that all PPG related children achieved the expected standard.  There were no children who attract the PPG in either year 2 or year 6 last year and so ROL cannot be used to compare attainment and achievement of children attracting PPG with that of others either within the school or nationally at the end of a key stage.
