Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is an allocation of funding provided to school to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement.

 A child may be eligible to receive Pupil Premium if their parents receive one or more of the following benefits:

 Universal credit (provided you have a net income of £7400 or less)

  • Income support
  • Income-based jobseekers’ allowance
  • Income-related employment and support allowance
  • Support under Part IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of state pension credit
  • Child tax credit, provided that you are not also entitled to working tax credit and have an annual gross income of £16,190 or less

 These are examples of how the funding can be spent:

 extra one-to-one or small-group support for children within the classroom.

  • Employing extra teaching assistants to work with classes.
  • Running catch-up sessions before or after school, for example for children who need extra help with maths or literacy.
  • Running a school breakfast club to improve attendance.
  • Providing extra tuition for able children.
  • Providing music lessons for children whose families would be unable to pay for them.
  • Funding educational trips and visits.
  • Paying for additional help such as speech and language therapy or family therapy.
  • Funding English classes for children who speak another language at home.
  • Investing in resources that boost children’s learning, such as laptops or tablets.

 In 2021/22 we have nine children eligible to receive PPG and we will receive a total of £13,871.00. This includes £2410.00 from Virtual Schools.

 We do not anticipate that the allocation per child will change in 2022/23.
