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 funding allocations for 2023/2024 are: 

  • Pupils in Reception to Year 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM (Free School Meals) - £1,455.
  • 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 - £2,530.
  • Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order) - £2,530.
  • Service pupil premium - £335.

How do we spend the PPG? 


Our PPG for 2023/2024 is £86,700. Click below to see our full Pupil Premium Strategy written in December 2021, with a 3 year vision to December 2024 and reviewed annually every December.


The key barriers to learning for children in receipt of the PPG in our school have been identified as:


  • Lower attendance figures for disadvantaged to non-disadvantaged pupils
  • Poor language and communication skills
  • Weak phonics and early reading skills
  • Lower achievement in Reading, Writing and Mathematics at the end of KS2 
  • The negative impact of the pandemic upon social and emotional wellbeing
  • Support for families and encouraging focus around supporting home learning
