The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)- Background Information to the PPG
In 2011, the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), which is additional to main school funding, was introduced by the Government to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Who Receives the Pupil Premium Grant
The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to pupils in Reception to Year 11 from families, who are registered as 'Free School Meals' (FSM) or who have been registered as FSM at any point in the last 6 years (known as 'Ever 6'), together with children who have been in care for 6 months or more.
The Pupil Premium Grant at Coleshill Heath School
The Staff and Governors at Coleshill Heath School are united in a shared vision, that EVERY child deserves the right to access educational excellence every single day, regardless of social background. Therefore our policy on the spending of our PPG is whole-heartedly centred upon our commitment to ensuring that the 'personalized needs' of all of our children are met, to support them to achieve their highest possible goals and reach their full potential...'Every child, every day!'
We target and plan for the individual needs of each child in receipt of the PPG, allocating spending on a range of initiatives, which have been identified by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to have the greatest impact on 'narrowing-the-gap' and raising standards of progress. See https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/toolkit/toolkit-a-z/
The provision we offer is centered upon identifying gaps in learning, tailoring bespoke intervention, be it academic and/or social and emotional provision, and moving children to, at a minimum, their age related expectation and beyond.
