Pupil Premium Grant
Pupil Premium is an additional grant given to schools by the Government to address the needs of students who are eligible for free school meals, Looked after Students (LAC) or whose parents are in the National Services. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), which is additional to the main school funding, is the best way to address inequalities between students eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those students who are not. Additionally the Government believes this funding will help to close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
Each school may decide how best to use the funding and they are held accountable for how it has been used to support those pupils eligible. Schools are required to report this information.
In the case of Cranbury College the PPG is calculated from the January census and due to the ever changing school roll it is difficult to link it to specific pupils. Cranbury College is aware that many of our students are disadvantaged not only as a consequence of deprivation but a result of the negative impact of permanent exclusion.
We will continue to use the Pupil Premium funding to support students to raise standards and attainment. The funding has been used in a number of different areas, including but not limited to:
• Wider curriculum experience -to enhance the curriculum, ensure the students are able
to participate and to give them opportunity to experience new and challenging activities
• To improve attendance and engagement and consequently to raise the achievement
and attainment of vulnerable students
• To create a nurturing environment on all sites to enable students to thrive and realise
Our aim for Cranbury College is to be the cornerstone of support to young people in Reading. We offer a provision of services that make a positive impact on the outcomes for young people and the schools they attend. Cranbury College provision is flexible, bespoke and offers an enriched curriculum to meet the academic and vocational needs as well as health and wellbeing of all its students. The College offers teaching and learning opportunities that provide young people with literacy and numeracy progression alongside socialisation skills and preparation for next steps. The Pupil Premium Grant helps support this vision.
