What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and help close any gaps in attainment between them and their peers. It is allocated to schools to enable them to support children who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been at any time in the last six years or pupils who have left local authority care following adoption, Special Guardianship Order or Child Arrangements Order. These types of PPG are currently £1,385 per child and £2,300 per child respectively. Schools also receive PPG for children in local authority care at a rate of £2,410 per child in Lancashire.
Schools have also been allocated a sum of money, 'Recovery Premium', to enable us to help children recover from the effects that Covid-19 has had on their learning.
