Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium (PP) 2017/18

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gaps in attainment and achievement between them and their peers.

In the 2017 to 2018 financial year, Ormiston Rivers Academy will receive £201,475.00 for 200 eligible pupils under the following pupil premium funding streams:

  • 185 students x £935 for each secondary-aged pupil registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (sometimes called “ever 6”)
  • 15 x £1,900 for each looked-after pupil who has been looked after for 1 day or more; was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005; or left care under a special guardianship order or a residence order.

Academy Objectives

Our objectives remain steadfast in taking an approach to maintain sustainable, continuous improvement which includes;

  • providing targeted support to improve the attainment and enrichment of disadvantaged pupils.
  • identifying vulnerable groups and ensuring their opportunity to succeed through additional interventions is maximised.
  • monitoring and proactively working towards reducing the gap in attainment between FSM and non-FSM pupils.
  • tracking outcomes of chosen interventions to ensure the maximum possible progress that justifies best value for money.
  • supporting staff with potential barriers to learning for FSM pupils and other vulnerable groups .
  • encouraging parents and carers to apply for FSM through positive engagement where changes in circumstance warrant FSM.
