The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding provided by the Department for Education (DfE) to enhance the education of our most socio-economically deprived students, with the intent of closing the attainment gap of students who are vulnerable to possible underachievement.
The allocation of funding is based upon the number of students entitled to free school meals within the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM) and children in care (known as LAC) that attend the school in Years 7-11. There is also additional Pupil Premium funding (known as the Service Premium) for any student who has or has had within the last four years a parent in the armed forces (known as Ever 4 Service). All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used annually.
