What is the Pupil Premium Grant?

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to:

The key barriers to learning for children in receipt of the PPG in our school have been identified as:


In school barriers



Limited speech and language/vocabulary acquisition in EYFS which impacts on learning especially reading.


Whole school approach to reading comprehension, inference, words in context, vocabulary acquisition and teaching approaches to key domains


Challenges with low self esteem and pupils being in a secure place mentally and emotionally.


Lack of regular routines with homework, spellings and PE kit.


Lack of access to life, musical and cultural experiences.


Limited access to resources to support work at home especially pertinent to Y6 SAT’s revision.


A new approach to in school assessment – summative testing used to support TA of pupils progress and outcomes.
