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 value of the 2016-17 Pupil Premium Grant allocation was £308,502
This comprised a grant available from September 2016 to March 2017 of £187,261 and a grant from April 2017 to August 2017 of £121,241
All expenditure is monitored 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.
