Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is provided for schools to support pupils from low-income families and looked after children. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. Schools also receive money for children whose parents are serving in the armed forces.

Parents of Ogbourne School, whose children are eligible for the grant, are invited to come into school to talk to staff about how the grant is going to be spent. Parents are then kept updated with progress as part of the usual parent evenings and report writing systems.

Any parents who wish to know more, please pop into school and see either Mrs Normington or your child's class teacher.

Pupil Premium 2017-18

Mrs Temple-Brown, a teacher in school, works with our Pupil Premium children. Her role, however, is not just to facilitate high quality group work for pupils eligible for the grant. Using money from other sources, we are also using her to support children throughout the school as group work is normal practice within the school.  We review our practices and outcomes on a termly basis and work with the children and their parents to ensure the children are achieving well and that they are  happy and engaged in learning.

At the start of the year, parents of children who are eligible for the grant are reminded of this; they are given information about how their child is being supported and they are invited to come into school and talk to the class teacher if they want any further information. Parents then have the opportunity to review and discuss their child’s progress as part of our three parent evening opportunities during the year. In addition, we operate an open-door policy which means that all staff are normally available after school to discuss more immediate concerns. We also provide a school report at the end of the year.
