Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

PPG is awarded for the sole purpose of:

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged students (Pupil Premium students) and closing any gaps compared to their non-PP peers.
  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.

Pupils are considered disadvantaged as a result of them either:

  • currently being in receipt of free school meals (FSM)
  • at some point in the last 6 years, having been in receipt of FSM (Ever 6 funding)
  • currently living in care: children looked after (CLA) or they have been previously looked after/adopted (pupil premium plus funding)
  • being the child of a person(s) employed in the armed forces (service pupil premium)

The PPG is a school-based grant to raise the attainment of all disadvantaged students and hence is not regarded or used as a personal budget.
