In accordance with the academy’s Pupil Premium statement, this summary outlines the expenditure of this grant.  The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is a Government initiative that targets additional funding to help schools and academies close the attainment gap between children from low-income backgrounds and other disadvantaged families and their peers.  Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided in order to support these pupils in reaching their potential.


The amount of Pupil Premium funding allocated to Thistley Hough Academy is shown in the table below.  Allocations are based on a fixed amount per pupil for anyone who has been entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) within the last 6 years. A higher premium is paid for looked-after pupils.

Academic Year Total Amount of Pupil Premium Funding
2013 – 2014 £315,000
2014 – 2015 £339,405
2015 – 2016 £219,805
2016 – 2017 £260,684

Pupil Premium is spent in both an integrated and targeted way in order to ensure that all entitled pupils who receive additional support are enabled to maximise all learning opportunities both within and beyond the classroom.
