Pupil Premium

"The use of extra funding for disadvantaged pupils is very well managed by a senior leader. The decision to use qualified teachers to provide expert support has proved very successful. The impact of the funding money is checked robustly and resources are used successfully to improve pupils’ achievement".

What is the Pupil Premium Grant?


The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap with their peers. The government has chosen to mainly identify disadvantaged pupils through eligibility for free school meals.

Eligibility is identified by using criteria prior to September 2014, after which all foundation and Key Stage 1 pupils automatically gained the right to a free school meal.
