What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011. The funding, received as an addition sum to the general annual grant (calculated using the total number of children on roll), is based on school census figures for the following children:
- Those eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past six years.
- Those who have been adopted, or have a special guardianship, residence or child arrangements order in place.
- Those recorded as a service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.
