What is Pupil Premium?
Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium grant (PPG) is extra money that is allocated to children who are looked-after or who have ceased to be looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and to children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium grant allocated to their school is spent. Schools are held accountable for their use of this additional funding and how it is of educational benefit to those children it is allocated to.
How do we spend the funding?
In order to track and monitor the impact of the funding spent, Rimon creates a provision map for all children receiving a PPG. Provision can be made to support academic achievement and it can also be used to support other areas of school and home life such as social and emotional learning
