School Budget

The Governing Body and the Executive Head are responsible for the School Budget and ensuring that the school is viable and manages the school finances well.

No members of staff have a gross salary of over £100,000.

Previous school budget’s can be compared with other schools by going to the DfE’s Financial Benchmarking service website.

Pupil Premium Grant

As part of our determination to ensure that all children get the best start in education that they deserve, we ensure that our Pupil Premium funding which comes directly from central Government, is used wisely to benefit those children who require additional support.
We are targeting this money to support our work on READING, WRITING and MATHEMATICS as these areas require further improvement across the school. We also value the Family Support provided within school which support ATTENDANCE, BEHAVIOUR, PARENTING SKILLS.

2020-21 Spending plans

We have been allocated £169,020. Due to the ongoing Coronavirus issues that are affecting all schools, pupil premium is being used to ensure all PPG pupils are catching up with learning and progress is being maintained and, in some cases, increased so that attainment overall has not been damaged by the effects of lockdown or bubble closures.

This is also being supplemented by more general ‘Catch Up Funding’ from central Government which is being targeted at specific year groups where progress has been slowed by lockdown and bubble closure. Full details will be shared during any inspection.

All expenditure from PPG and Catch up funding will be reviewed as to its efficacy through assessment data analysis on a half-termly basis, and through discussions with staff and any relevant changes required will be implemented as soon as possible.

2019-20 Spending plans following a full review of previous years’ spending and effect on closing the gap

Once again we could see impact of our use of pupil premium money across the school with progress results in all year groups improving and many children with additional funding making more than expected progress. This has led to an increase in attainment at the end of KS2 and higher progress measures on Government statistics.

For 2019-20 Trumacar has received approximately £174K in Pupil Premium Grant  in order to support children in ‘closing the gap’ in attainment and progress. 45% children are recorded as being able to claim PPG at our school and therefore this money is used right across the school.

Our Pupil Premium Grant for 2019-20 has been used to support the agreed School Development Priorities with a specific focus on PPG pupils.

The grant has therefore been used to ensure that:

Full details of our spending are shared and agreed with governors on an annual basis and they, along with Senior Leaders, then monitor the effectiveness of this spending and the benefits to the pupils (both PPG and non-PPG) This is monitored termly through data, and half-termly through observations, planning scrutiny and work scrutiny and teacher/teaching assistants will be held to account for progress and attainment being made. Further spending may be highlighted in CAF/TAF/CIN/CP meetings throughout the year and the school reserves some funding for these purposes as needed.

The Pupil Premium Grant spending and effectiveness is reviewed annually ahead of annual budget allocations.
