Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England.  It is a school level grant that gives schools extra resources to help them meet challenges, including those arising from deprivation.

It's allocated for schools to:

Children eligible for Free School Meals and Looked-After Children are groups who have been identified as being vulnerable to falling behind other children.

Schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit. However, schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding.  Since September 2012, schools have been required to publish online information about how they have used the Pupil Premium.

Stanford Primary School receives funding for each disadvantaged pupil and uses the funding flexibly, in the best interests of each eligible pupil.  Leaders draw upon an evidence based approach to apply a 'tiered' approach to delivering their pupil premium strategy.

Tier 1 - Improving Teaching

Tier 2 - Academic Support

Schools should decide on the main issues stopping their pupils from succeeding at school and use pupil premium to buy extra help and provision.

Tier 3 - Wider Approaches

This may include non-academic use of pupil premium such as:
