Pupil Premium

The information below outlines how we use the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) to support the learning of children in our school.


What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011. It was designed to give additional money to support schools in raising the attainment of children who

•receive free school meals, children whose

•serve in the Armed Forces

•are in local authority care.

These groups of children have been identified nationally as achieving at a lower level than children from less disadvantaged backgrounds. For example, national figures show that 11 year olds who are eligible for Free School Meals are around twice as likely not to achieve Level 4 in maths and English as other 11 year olds.


Where does the money come from?

PPG is allocated to schools based on the number of children who are currently known meet the criteria above.

The funding is therefore given to schools to spend as they think best, “It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools…. is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility”, DfE website, although there is a requirement to publish online how this money is spent.
