The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is funding allocated to schools by the Government for children in school considered to be from deprived backgrounds, who are eligible for Free School Meals together with pupils who have been registered as Looked After and whose parent(s) is/are currently in the armed forces. Funding is provided to ensure that schools are able to support these pupils in achieving their full potential. The government does not state how the grant should be spent but it is expected that the school will use the funding to employ strategies that will decrease the difference in attainment between those pupils who are considered deprived and those who are not. School is accountable for this allocation of resources and must demonstrate that pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium achieve well compared to other pupils.
