Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant

The Pupil Premium Grant allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals and children who have been in care or ‘looked after’ continuously for more than 6 months.  It is also allocated to children whose parents serve in the armed forces.

Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium according to their specific needs, however, we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils eligible for the PPG.  We are required to publish online information identifying the impact of the grant. 

We aim for all children to achieve their potential and to eliminate barriers to learning. IN order to do this, we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our children and that appropriate provision is put in place for those who require additional support.
