Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Report 2015/2016

The Government allocates an amount of money to every school in addition to their funding. This money is called the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). Schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit. However, they are accountable for how they have used the funding to support those students eligible for pupil premium funding. At The Heights, we only receive PPG for CIOC pupils as our year 11 pupils only become singly registered with us after the census.

For CIOC pupils we liaise with the BwD Virtual School Head, Charlotte Hesketh and produce detailed provision maps as per their protocols.

At The Heights we have allocated expenditure based on evidence from the Sutton Trust who have produced a toolkit comparing the effectiveness of a variety of school activities compared to their cost.
