Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium Grant Allocation 2016-2017

Ofsted 2014 said “the achievement of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is good because the school promotes equality and tackles discrimination effectively. The additional funding is used successfully for a wide range of additional sessions to close the gap between eligible pupils and the others.  The school’s information on the progress of eligible pupils currently at the school shows that they make similar good progress to the others.”

Schools receive a Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) to support looked-after children and/or children who are currently in receipt of free school meals or have been entitled over the last 6 years.  For 2016-17 the total amount of PPG received is £42,240.
