The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding given to school, beyond the main school funding.
PPG allocation is based on the number of students in the school who have been registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last six years, Looked-after children defined in the Children Act 1989, or have left the care of the Local Authority because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangement order or a residence order. PPG funding is also allocated if any pupil has been recorded as being eligible for service pupil premium or any pupil who is in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.
PPG funding enhances the core offer for identified students enabling us to personalise learning to support individual needs.
LAC Pupil Premium
School receives £1000 from the Local Authority, this can be paid in one lump sum or in instalments depending on the LA. If the pupil is under 5 years of age £300 is received. Termly LAC reviews are held and additional money can be requested via Virtual Schools. LAC expenditure is monitored closely.
In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected.
All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils to encourage the development of healthy active lifestyles.
