What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
The Government currently pays an additional grant to schools to help support disadvantaged children of all abilities to reach their potential.
This is called the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). Eligible children are those who:
· have been eligible for Free School Meals at any time in the last six years
· are in the care of the local authority or have been adopted from care
A Pupil Premium Grant is also available to provide pastoral support for children from service families, including regular personnel, reservists and veterans.
As a school, we have to demonstrate that our Pupil Premium funding is used effectively to increase the academic achievement of eligible children. This additional funding enables us to provide our Learning Mentor, Lunch Club, Forest School activities and much more. It also covers the full cost of school milk and school trips, including residential trips, and provides bursaries for uniform, equipment and KS2 music lessons for eligible children. The pupil premium report on how we spent our pupil premium grant last year and how we intend to spend this year’s grant can be found below.
