Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
What is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and close the gap between them and their peers.
Funding in the Academic Year 2017 to 2018
Total Pupil Premium Grant Allocation for the academic year 2017/18 is estimated to be £250,590
In the 2017 to 2018 academic year, Ingram Road will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:
If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.
Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding.
How many pupils at Ingram Road are eligible for the Pupil Premium?
In 2017/2018 56% of all children in school were eligible for Pupil Premium Funding. Each child received funding of £1,320. School received a total of £250,590.
Pupil Premium is allocated based on a document produced by the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) called Raising Achievement Plan (RAP). The Governing Body and Senior Leadership Team then make strategic decisions on the use of the pupil premium money to ensure it is targeted according to need.
At Ingram Road we believe that every child can believe, achieve, succeed and grow together. With this in mind, we allocate pupil premium based on the theory that EVERY child should be treated as an individual, with sometimes very specific needs.
Our belief is that to gain the very best from our children and close the attainment gaps between children who attract Pupil Premium and those who don't, is simply to assess every child's individual progress which in turn, validates the requirement for interventions suited to their abilities regardless of their background.
Outcomes for all pupils can be identified in the schools achievement data.
