Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
The pupil premium grant (PPG) is additional funding which is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been:
- Eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’)
- Service children including those who were eligible for the service child premium at any point in the last 6 years.
- Pupils in care, who have been looked after by the local authority (LAC) for one day or more; were adopted from care; left care under a special guardianship order or received a residence order.
In the current academic year (2023/24) there are 77 pupils eligible for pupil premium (49% of our cohort). In the financial year 2023-24 Oak Lodge School is expected to receive £70,340 PPG funding overall. The DfE has given schools the freedom to spend the money it receives to support pupils who may be disadvantaged. The aim at Oak Lodge School is that the pupil premium is used to address any underlying inequalities which exist and enable these pupils to achieve the highest levels of attainment by overcoming any barriers to learning. In addition, the school will receive a Recovery Grant, to support the pupils following lost learning time during the pandemic. The school, this year, will receive £64.170.
Pupil Premium strategy is reviewed annually at the beginning of the Autumn term.
