The government believes the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) (NB: used to be called Free School Meals) which is additional funding to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for PPG and their wealthier peers. This ensures that funding reaches the pupils who need it most. In most cases the PPG is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the PPG, allocated to schools per PPG pupil, is spent since they are best placed to access what additional provision should be made for the individuals within their responsibility. Schools receive £1,300 per pupil.  LAC (Looked After Children) pupils receive £1,900 this year. The school spent the funding in the following ways: 

 

  • Those children eligible for PPG will receive a free school meal regardless of year group.
  • We also fund free school milk for our PPG children.
  • One to one tuition in Year 4 for Literacy and Maths, Free breakfast club for our PPG children to ensure that they have a healthy start to the day.
  • The pupil premium funding pays for the additional resources and food consumables that the Breakfast club needs.
  • Additional Teaching assistants were employed for intervention support work.
