The Pupil Premium (PPG) is a grant paid to schools by the government, in order to help disadvantaged children achieve more in their education. It is provided for children from low-income families, who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years, or who have been in care for more than six months.
The purpose of the grant is to enable schools to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their wealthier peers. Schools are required to spend the money on areas that will directly impact these children's attainment and/or their emotional wellbeing.
As this money enables the school to make significant improvements in our educational offer, we urge all eligible families to apply. The only way the government knows who is eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant is through the number of pupils registered with the Local Authority for free school meals.
