What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and diminish the difference between them and their peers. In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, all primary schools will receive £1330 for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. In addition, schools will also receive £1,900 for each looked-after pupil.
The lead member of staff for PPG is Mrs Caroline Powell (Assistant Headteacher)
The lead governor for PPG is Mrs Geraldine Keegan.
Is My child eligable for the Pupil Premium Grant?
To be eligible you or your child must be receiving one of the following:
• Income support or income-based Job Seekers Allowance;
• Child Tax Credit with an annual taxable income of less than £16,190 (provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit);

All children in Key Stage One are entitled to a free school meal (hot meal or packed lunch) but your child may be eligible for a free school meal and the pupil premium grant. If you think that you your child would have been eligible for free school meals and you are in receipt of one or more of the benefits listed please speak directly to Mrs Powell. We can then work with you to ensure that your child receives their full entitlement in school.
