Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is a government initiative introduced in April 2011 that targets extra money at disadvantaged pupils. Research shows that this group of pupils underachieve compared to non-disadvantaged pupils. The aim of the premium is to provide additional support to disadvantaged pupils to raise the attainment of pupils of all abilities to reach their potential. The pupil premium is a specific grant allocated to a school for each of its pupils registered as eligible for free school meal, or has been known to be eligible in the last 6 years . An enhanced pupil premium allocation is made for each looked after pupil (in the care of local authority) and for each pupil who has ceased to be looked after because of adoption or special guardianship. There is also a smaller pupil premium allocation for each pupil who is a child of a parent in the regular armed forces.
Please find below information on how we have spent the pupil premium in the last two years, together with our evaluation of its impact.
