Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Allocation

The Secretary of State for Education lays down the following terms and conditions on which assistance is given in relation to the pupil premium grant (PPG) payable to schools and local authorities for the financial year beginning 1 April 2017.

PPG provides funding for two policies:

∙ Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential

∙ Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

 

Pupils considered disadvantaged are eligible for PPG funding. These include:

∙ Pupils in year groups’ reception to Year 6 recorded as receiving free school meals (FSM) (or in receipt of FSM in the last 6 years)

∙ Looked after children (LAC) (including those looked after for at least one day)

∙ Post LAC i.e. those children who have left local authority care through adoption, special guardianship or other arrangements since January 2017

∙ Service children
