Pupil Premium Grant Allocation 2015-16

Pupil Premium and Additional Needs Funding (not Special Educational Needs)

Woodcroft receives additional money to support the needs of its pupils. A major element of this funding is comprised of the Pupil Premium to raise standards of those eligible for free school meals.

The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools in April at the start of the Financial Year. However, expenditure is monitored in line with the Academic Year. The 2015-16 allocation combines elements of two grants.

The value of the 2015-16 Pupil Premium Grant was £300,316

This comprised the grant available from September 2015 to March 2016 of £167,766 and the grant from April 2016 to August 2016 of £132,550

All expenditure is monitored by and approved by the school’s Governing Body. This ensures that it is used to the benefit of the whole school and effectively targets those in need.
