Background and context of PPG

PPG was introduced for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last 6 years with the intention of closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged and no-disadvantaged children.

There are no guidelines on how this money can be spent, although performance tables now contain information about the impact schools have made on closing the gap between different groups.

Schools must evidence strategies in place to raise the attainment of FSM pupils and what the associated costs are alongside attainment and progress figures for this group of children.

Since 2012 schools have been required to publish details of our PPG on our website, which must include:

  • The amount of the school’s allocation
  • Details of how it is intended to be spent
  • Details of how previous year allocation was spent
  • The effect of the expenditure on the attainment of the pupil’s grant was intended for

This should be an overall breakdown of funding and how effective it has proved.

 

Barriers to learning

  • All pupils have an Education, Health and Care Plan
  • All pupils have a significant level of cognition and learning difficulties
  • 80 pupils have speech language and communication difficulties. 60 of whom have support from the Speech and Language Therapy service
  • 29 pupils have English as an additional language and will usually have come into the UK with very little formal schooling before this point
  • 8 with additional medical needs that means they miss long periods of school or have many medical appointments
  • 17 pupils have SEMH difficulties alongside their learning needs
