OA-NV Pupil Premium Plan 2021-2024 - updated Dec 2023 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.

The three year plan summarizes our challenges. objectives and intended outcomes - the budget allocated to these initiatives come from the wider school budget as well as PPG and will benefit all pupils including disadvantaged ones.

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. We share good practice and learning between academies within the trust and report to the AAB on a regular basis.
