Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is in addition to main school funding. It is allocated to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most.
The national trend is that students who are eligible for FSM have lower achievement than those who are not eligible. The PPG is to be used to help narrow this gap.
At The PRIDE Academy, we believe that all students should be supported to achieve their potential. We are committed to using the resources made available to us to help achieve the best outcomes for all learners.
