Pupil Premium  

What is the Pupil Premium Grant?

In addition to the usual budget from the government, schools receive extra money for some pupils attending their school. This is called the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). Schools receive this for children who receive Free School Meals, or have been eligible for them at any time in the last six years. (An allocation is also given for Looked After Children (LAC) and children from service families).

Since September 2012 schools have been required to publish to parents (and OFSTED) how they use their Pupil Premium Grants in school to enhance the education of those children receiving it. Each school is allocated £1320 per year (2016-17) for each child who is eligible.

Pupil Premium Use

Our pupil premium funding has been used to provide a wide range of additional support to our pupils and these interventions have had a significant impact on our pupils attainment. Our objective in using the pupil premium funding is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. As a school we have a good track record of ensuring pupils make good progress.
