Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2016 – 2017

 

Pupil Premium is allocated to students from low income families and there are criteria as to who and how students qualify. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we are accountable as to how the additional funding has been used to support pupils from low income families.


Our Pupil Premium allocation for 2016 – 2017 is £52,030 representing approximately 51% of pupils across the Vale School.


Key areas of planned expenditure for this year are:

 

 . Music therapy/peripatetic music sessions £7,030 

  . Additional Speech and Language Therapy input to enhance provision £20,000

  . Pupil interventions from additional staff, including PODD £25,000


Our Looked After Children receive additional specific funding, which is been spent on individual resources/provision for them
