Pupil Premium

The Use and Impact

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding allocated by the government to children deemed to be disadvantaged. In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

PPG provides funding for two separate policies:

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their full potential
  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces


The school claims for the following groups: 

  • Disadvantaged pupils
    • Pupils in year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals (FSM) as well as eligible children with no recourse to public funds (NRPF) in this year group. Pupil premium per pupil £1,395.
    • Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 as well as eligible NRPF pupils in these year groups. Pupil premium per pupil £955.
    • Looked after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority. Pupil premium per pupil £2,345.
    • 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 arrangement order (previously known as a residence order). Pupil premium per pupil £2,345.
  • Service children
    • Pupils in year groups 6 to 11 recorded as Ever 5 service children or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence. Pupil premium per pupil £310.

As a school we recognise that many of our pupils come from circumstances that may mean they have been disadvantaged at some point in their life and all of our pupils do encounter barriers to learning. Therefore, we carefully choose strategies and invest in interventions to create provision that target and can support a wider range of pupils not just those with additional funding.
