Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Strategy 2020 – 2021

Review date July 2021

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), which is an allocation of additional funding, is the best way to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement and to address the gap in their educational attainment.

Eligibility includes children:

  • who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at some point in the last six years;
  • who are looked after or in Local Authority care (CLA)
  • whose parents are currently employed by the armed services.

Schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit.  However schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Since September 2012 schools have been required to publish online information about how they have used the Pupil Premium.

In 2020 – 2021 we expect to receive £90,740

In 2019 – 2020 we received £91,740

In 2018 – 2019 we received £96,360

 What catch-up funding is for:

The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds.
