Covid Catch Up funding 2020

pupil premium 2019-2020

PPG allocation for 2017-18 was £27,545 and our 2018-19 FY allocation has been confirmed by the DfE as £39,365 – a significant increase from last year.

This funding has been allocated based on eligibility as at our January 2018 census:

39 FSM pupils
2 Service pupils
1 Adopted from Care pupil
42 total

As at September 18, following pupil moves to year 12 and new year 7’s we have the following PPG pupils:

32 FSM PPG funded pupils
9 FSM School Defined PPG pupils
1 Service pupil
1 Adopted from Care pupil
43 total

School Defined PPG do not trigger funding until the January 2019 census, however we have
apportioned the FSM allocation of £995 p/pupil 60:40 so that the 40% is available to spend on these pupils as soon as they became eligible. This only applies to FSM pupils as Service and Adopted from Care allocations are all spent on the pupil.

To ensure teachers spend PPG funds effectively they have been provided with their carry forward
figures, and also both Autumn and Spring term allocations. Allocations will be updated termly as and when we are notified from the LA of new eligibilities for FSM.
