Each year from April 2011, the school has been given additional government funding called Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). PPG provides funding for raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers.
We have attached a document which outlines the funding our school has been given.
From 2015, additional funding has been made available through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care.
The Early Years Pupil Premium provides us with an extra £302 a year for three and four year old children who meet at least 1 of the following criteria:
their family gets 1 of the following:
income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
income-related Employment and Support Allowance
support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
they are currently being looked after by a local authority in England or Wales
they have left care in England or Wales through:
a special guardianship order
a child arrangement order
We will use the extra funding to help ensure that your child’s attainment and progress is appropriate to their age and stage and that any gap between that of their peers is closing. This could include, for example, investing in additional staff to provide high quality, targeted learning support to meet your child’s individual learning needs; additional training and support for our staff on specialised areas such as speech and language or investing in partnership working with our colleagues in the area to further our expertise.
Please be aware that once a child previously eligible for EYPP starts school they will not become automatically eligible for the school-age pupil premium.

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport.
We have attached a document which outlines how much additional funding our school has been given and how it has been allocated.
