What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011; it is additional funding allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after by the Local Authority continuously for more than six months and for children of service personnel. At Oratory, we are committed to ensuring that opportunities for teaching and learning meet the needs of all pupils, particularly socially disadvantaged pupils and those who are vulnerable. Our school uses the PPG grant to ensure all PPG pupils are supported in making progress. We track the progress of our pupils regularly.
Our aims are:
- To close the gap in attainment for PPG pupils in core subjects;
- To provide additional teaching, learning and social development opportunities through teaching staff and external agencies.
- To ensure that each pupil is given opportunity to develop their potential and participate in extra curricular activities inside and outside school.
