Pupil premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or backgrounds who are entitled to free school meals, free school meals (FSM), who are looked after by the state or who are in service families. Its purpose is to ensure that schools can pay for resources and initiatives that ensure that these children have the same opportunities as the other children in the school.

|Measuring the impact of PPG spending|
|The impact of the PPG is measured every term using the school’s PPG provision map. Staff complete individual sheets outlining the provision and the impact that provision has had on attainment and progress of the children.
Year on year the support given to PPG children has ensured they are making expected progress or even higher in some cases, as their peers.
Every staff member is responsible for the impact and quality of the provision for PPG children.
This information is shared at Pupil Progress meetings with the SLT and at Governors Meetings.
The school follows the PPG policy that has been developed and adopted by the SLT and Governors. This feeds in to the PPG provision mapping.
PPG children are high on the school’s agenda and every effort is made to ensure that we are diminishing the differences for all of our PPG children.
