Pupil Premium (PPG) is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities by: diminishing possible gaps and offering enrichment opportunities.
At Grange Park Junior, we endeavour to support pupil premium children of all abilities across all areas of the curriculum.
In the 2019 to 2020 financial year, primary and junior schools received £1,320 for each pupil (from Foundation Stage to Year 6) registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
If you think you are eligible for Free School Meals, please contact us at the school reception and we will be happy to help you.
Primary and Junior schools have also received £2,300 for each child registered as being ‘Looked After Children’ (LAC). Furthermore, for pupils whose parent/s are serving in HM Forces/retired from the Ministry of Defence, an additional £300 funding has been allocated.
From April 2020 the new rates will be;
- £1345 per primary aged pupil
- £310 for pupils whose parent/s are serving in HM Forces/retired from the Ministry of Defence
- £2345 for children registered as being 'Looked After Children'
