The Use and Impact
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding allocated by the government to children deemed to be disadvantaged. In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
The school now claims for the 3 groups entitled to PPG, the groups are:
- Free School Meals - £955 per child (pupils entitled to or in receipt of FSM for the past 6 years are also eligible)
- Free School Meals - £1,345 per child (pupils entitled to or in receipt of FSM for the past 6 years) for pupils from reception year to Year 6
- Looked after Children – £2,345 (this money is held by the Virtual Headteacher who works in conjunction with the school)
- Service Children - £310 (pupils within the last 4 years whose parents/carers have been in the services)
As a school we recognise that many of our pupils come from circumstances that may mean they have been disadvantaged at some point in their life and all of our pupils do encounter barriers to learning. Therefore we carefully choose strategies and invest in interventions to create provision that target and can support a wider range of pupils not just those with additional funding.
Please note, the new PPG guidance for 2020-2021 has been temporarily removed as we are moving to a new model which will be on the website to view from February 2021.
