The aim of the Government’s new Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is to raise achievement amongst disadvantaged children.
The targeted and strategic use of the Pupil Premium Grant will support us in achieving our aims of ensuring that we address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches those pupils who need it most. The funding is worked out on the number of children at Cherhill who are on Free School meals (FSM), who are the children of parents who work in the armed forces or who are Children Looked After (CLA).
We aim to show you how we decide what provision is suitable and how the money has been spent. Funds will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means not all children receiving PPG funding will be in receipt of interventions at one time. It also shows you the progress made by children (without naming them) who have benefitted from the PPG funding.
If you have any questions about PPG then please make an appointment to talk to the Headteacher who will be happy to discuss PPG and if your child is entitled to this extra support.
