Pupil and Sports Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in Reception to year 6. For looked after children the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

We will ensure that the additional funding benefits the pupils who need it most and that is makes a significant impact on their education and social well-being.

The school will use PPG funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for funding and others.

Your child may be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and the Pupil Premium Grant, funding is available for children in Reception-Year 5 if you meet the criteria. If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 you can still apply for Free School Meals even though your child has Universal Free School meals.

Pupil Premium Grant aims to raise achievement and improve outcomes for children in families of low income.

Free School Meals is support available to families of low income. Free School Meals is part of the Pupil Premium Grant.

At Offenham School we use the Pupil Premium funding to enhance the provision for pupils, ensuring that the curriculum and additional support is tailored to their needs. Through this we aim to improve pupil progress and attainment and to help overcome any barriers to learning.
