Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is a sum of money that schools receive for each student who is:

  • in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) either currently or at any time during the last 6 years
  • looked after by the local authority (CLA)
  • adopted
  • child of service personnel

Nationally, the statistics show that students who are in receipt of PPG do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this money is to try to close that attainment gap, bridging the inequality which exists between PPG students and their peers. Data over time at Avalon shows no such attainment gap.

PPG funding at Avalon is used on identified interventions or equipment to support individuals in making progress to address their key barrier for learning; in order to support them in making greater progress in their academic, social and emotional development. Some of these strategies and interventions are: therapies [music and drama]; extended opportunities for supported social interaction [after school clubs and residential opportunities]; one to one literacy interventions [Toe by Toe, Individual Literacy Intervention].

The Governing Body is responsible for accounting for the impact of Pupil Premium, the provisional spend is reported to governors at the start of each financial year [in line with the allocation of PPG] and impact is reported at the end of each academic year.

Currently PP for FSM = £935 pa

                PP for CLA/adopted pupils = £1900 pa

                PP for Service Children = £300 pa
