Pupil Premium Grant Allocation 2013 – 2014

Pupil Premium 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 Grant to raise standards of those eligible for free school meals.

In 2013-14 the value of this Pupil Premium was £257,345

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 2013-14 allocation combines elements of both grants.

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.

This money is used to raise pupil attainment through the following strategies and interventions:
