Pupil Premium

 Pupil Premium 2016-2017

Due to the school's current situation it is unable to publish a statement of spend for the current financial year.


Pupil Premium 2015-16 Allocation

We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the need of all pupils who belong to vulnerable groups.


When we allocate provision for socially disadvantaged pupils we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals (FSM) are disadvantaged and that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged qualify for free school meals.


At Drax CP School the expenditure of the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) may be used to reduce class sizes, provide small group work, one to one lessons and support for pupils in class lessons from trained Teaching Assistants.


As Drax CP School is situated in an isolated rural community the Governors and Headteacher also place great importance on using PPG to enable our vulnerable groups access to wider educational experiences, which enrich their lives, promote health and well-being and improve their self-esteem and confidence.


The current Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is £900 per child.

We have been allocated £18,480 of pupil premium funding
