Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), which is an allocation of additional funding, is the best way to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement and to address the gap in their educational attainment.

Eligibility includes children:

  • who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at some point in the last six years;
  • who are looked after or in Local Authority care (CLA)
  • whose parents are currently employed by the armed services.

Schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit. However schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

At Woodcote Primary around 1 in 7 pupils is eligible for the Pupil Premium. Around 20 children who are or have previously been Looked After, with around 5 different Virtual Heads at any one point.
