Who is eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant?

Pupils are eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant if they currently receive free school meals or have received them at any time since being at school. Families are encouraged to apply for free school meals if they think they may be eligible, even if they then choose for their child to bring a lunch from home instead. Pupils are eligible if their parents or carers are in receipt of any of the following benefits:

Income Support

Income-based Jobseekers Allowance

Income-related Employment and Support Allowance,

Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act1999,

The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit,

Child Tax Credit (provided you are not also entitled to working tax credit),

Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

Universal Credit (during the initial roll out of the benefit)


How is our PPG spent?

We spend our PPG in a variety of ways to ensure eligible pupils are supported in all aspects of their learning and development so they can make accelerated progress. The initiatves and interventions we have introduced are based upon the findings of the Sutton Trust toolkit and recent research highlighting examples of current thinking and effective practice.


This includes targeted support in areas of the curriculum such as phonics, literacy, and numeracy as well as access to specific intervention programmes for identified individuals. Support might also be targeted towards helping pupils with their attendance, behaviour, emotional and social development to help them overcome any barriers which impact on their learning and progress. We also offer reduced costs for enrichment activities, healthy snacks, trips, visits and summer playschemes.   

This is supported by a process of regular review, to enable us to make changes should we identify that pupils are not benefittig.
