Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is funding provided to schools in addition to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), with a lesser amount also allocated according to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.
It is for schools to decide how the PPG is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils for which they are responsible. However, schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. This information must be published on the school website. Please see below for information regarding how we are spending the pupil premium in the current academic year, impact it had during the last academic year.
