Holy Trinity Primary School
Pupil Premium Statement
What is the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)?
This is an amount of money the Government allocates to a school to support children who are entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) or have had FSM in the last 6 years (Ever 6), children who are looked after (CLA) and children who are from a service family. It is the aim to enable these pupils to reach their full potential and have the same learning opportunities as all other children.
PPG provides funding for two policies:
- raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers
- supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces
Disadvantaged pupils are defined as pupils in receipt of Free School Meals and pupils who are Looked-After Children.
It is for the school to decide how to best allocate those funds, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individuals in their school. Pupils in receipt of the funding are supported in a variety of ways.
