Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is an amount of money allocated to schools through their budget based on the number of children in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM). Each school allocates the grant to provide for the needs of its pupils with the aim of narrowing the gap between the progress and attainment of the lowest achieving children and the national expectations for their year group. The allocation of funds in each school will depend on the school context and the needs of individual children and groups of pupils. This means that there must be a flexible use of the money that may result in money being allocated differently across schools as priorities may vary year on year.
