Pupil premium and additional funding

How our academy uses any additional government funding to support our students.

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.

In 2020 to 2021 financial year, schools receive £1,345 per primary school age pupil or £955 per secondary age pupil. The level of funding for each looked-after-child is £2,345.

Within an alternative provision school such as ours it is very difficult to provide a completely accurate of the level of PPG to be allocated as this figure can fluctuate throughout the year depending on the students who attend our academy.

As a newly converted academy (1 May 2021) we do not yet have our pupil premium funding figures to publish. These will be made available here when confirmed.

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.
