Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

Schools receive a payment, or Pupil Premium, for children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), children who are, or have been, looked after (CLA) and those children from families with parents in the Armed Forces.  Eligibility for the Pupil Premium for 2012–13 was extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. The Government believes that the PPG is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between these children and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Principles:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils.

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.

  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.

  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

  • All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress and may identify priority groups or individuals.  Not all children will necessarily be in receipt of interventions at one time.

Our strategy for the use of Pupil Premium funding is below.
