The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)
What is Pupil Premium?
In 2011 – 12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding grant. School receives this grant into the budget based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).
From 2012 – 13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
Nationally, the statistics show that pupils who are in receipt of FSM do less well than their peers. The aim of this money is to try and close that attainment gap.
At Hayfield Lane Primary School:
- We will ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our pupils
- We will ensure that the needs of our pupils are adequately assessed and addressed and that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups
- We recognise that not all pupils who qualify for FSM will be registered. We therefore reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to any pupil or groups of pupils that we can legitimately identify as requiring additional support
- Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving FSM will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time.
