Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is a government funding allowance which is additional to main school funding.  It was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to support children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years, for children who are looked after by the Local Authority or adopted and children who have parents in the armed forces.

School decides how to best use the Pupil Premium funding to provide additional support to individual children to ensure they reach their full potential.  Westways is committed to ensuring that all children have access to a full, engaging curriculum, the best teaching and learning and carefully targeted support.

Pupil Premium 2017/2018

In 2017/18 94 of our children were eligible for Pupil Premium, providing a total of £124,040 of Pupil Premium funding.

An analysis of the effectiveness of expenditure for 2017/18 and how we have planned to use the Pupil Premium to offer additional support can be found here: Expenditure Report 2017-18

Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium Funding that may be used to help your child.

Measuring the Impact of PPG Spending

The school will evaluate the impact on each pupil at the end of each term.  Evaluation will focus on academic progress and how children’s self-confidence has developed as a consequence of the intervention.
