Pupil Premium Grant
What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to:
- Raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential.
- To support children and young people of parents who are in the regular armed forces.
The new allocations for 2020/2021 are:
- Pupils in Reception to Year 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM (Free School Meals) - £1345.
- Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by an English local authority - £2345.
- Pupils in year groups Reception to Year 11 recorded as Ever 6 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence - £310.

How do we spend the PPG?
Our PPG for 2020/2021 is £55,000. Click below to see our Pupil Premium Strategy for 2020/2021
The key barriers to learning for children in receipt of the PPG in our school have been identified as:
- Poor oracy skills
- Only 40% of the new Year 1 cohort had been predicted to achieve GLD in EYFS if continuing upon the same trajectory
- slippage due to less engagement with home learning through Covid - 19 pandemic
- spelling and phonics
- ability to reason and problem solve using mathematical vocabulary

High Achievement Review (Pupil Premium Review) March 2018
As a school that is continually self-reviewing, we have recently commissioned a review of how we spend the Pupil Premium Grant. This 'High Achievement Review' was undertaken by Mrs Liz Bramley, a Head Teacher, National Leader of Education and Pupil Premium reviewer. The review was used to support the school in evaluating current provision and to make recommendations to further improve our outcomes for our disadvantaged learners.
