Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) and how we allocate the funding.

It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked after Children (LAC) , children adopted from care (PLAC) and Service Forces children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
