Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Please read the information below for more details on how we spend our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.




The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is funding provided to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. A school will receive an amount of money for each pupil who fits the eligibility criteria.


The PPG is not ‘ring-fenced’ and schools are free to spend it as they wish but need to demonstrate that the expenditure is contributing to closing performance gaps between PPG children and others. The grant is intended to benefit children who are currently in school.


If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the office to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child. All cases are treated in confidence.
