The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is a Government initiative (begun in April 2011) that targets support for pupils who are at risk of becoming disadvantaged as learners due to deprivation. Disadvantaged learners are children who have limited funding or opportunity to access the same learning, social, physical or emotional experiences as their peers without additional support being put in place. The premium is provided in order to support these pupils in reaching their full potential.
The Government has used pupils entitled to ‘Free School Meals’ (FSM) and service children (HM Forces) as an indicator for the Pupil Premium Grant. They have deployed a fixed amount of money to schools per pupil,based on the number of puils registered for free school meals (or who have been registered for free school meals within the last 6 years – known as ‘Ever 6’), as ‘Looked After’ children (LAC), as children who have been adopted from care (AFC) and as Armed Forces Service children.
