Pupil premium and additional funding

OA-Th Pupil Premium Plan 2021-24 Download

What is pupil premium funding?

Pupil premium is funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years or have been in care for 6 months or longer.

Within an alternative provision school such as ours it is difficult to provide a completely accurate of the level of PPG to be allocated as this figure can fluctuate throughout the year dependent on students who are on roll in the academy. In 2020/21 the academy received £50,000. In 2021/22 the academy is expected to receive £41,765 pupil premium funding (and £8,990 recovery premium funding).

Monitoring and accountability

At Olive Academies, the trustees are ultimately accountable for the impact of pupil premium spending funding across the Trust. Within the academy, the headteacher is responsible for agreeing the plans and the Academy Advisory Board monitors its impact. We also get expert advice from a pupil premium grant reviewer and share learning across our network of academies.

The three year plan summarizes our challenges. objectives and intended outcomes. It also provides a review of outcomes in 2020/21. We will continue to share good practice and learning between academies within the trust and report to the AAB on a regular basis.
