Pupil Premium Grant Funding (PPGF)
Pupil Premium Grant Funding or PPGF is income that every school receives. The amount each school receives is calculated based on the number of children who have ever received a free school meal. Any child who has received a free school meal (excluding universal infant free school meals), at any point during their time at primary school, is eligible for Pupil Premium Grant Funding for their entire period at primary school.
We receive £1385.00 per year per eligible pupil. Any child in the care of the Local Authority or who has previously been in the care of the Local Authority is eligible for £2410.00 per year. Service Children are eligible for £320.00 per year.
As a school, we aggregate the amount we receive each year and spend the funding in ways that remove or reduce barriers to learning for disadvantaged children.
We publish a strategy document each year to outline the ways in which the school spends Pupil Premium income to directly impact on the outcomes of disadvantaged learners.
From September, 2021, we are publishing a 3-year strategy in line with DfE requirements. This strategy has overarching aims and principles with key actions for each school year. We will review and update this strategy each year, normally in September.
Our Strategy, along with a summary of how we address the NFER's Seven Building Blocks research can be found below:
