Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)            LGfL FSM PPG

For details of how to apply for help with the cost of clubs, trips and school meals, please see the links at the bottom of this page.

 

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium Grant, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

 

It is for All Saints' to decide how the Pupil Premium Grant, allocated per FSM pupil, is spent, since we are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within our responsibility.

 

At All Saints' we are free to spend the Pupil Premium Grant as we see fit. However, we are accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. New measures will be included in the Government's performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium Grant.

 

We are required to publish online information about how we have used the Pupil Premium Grant. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Pupil Premium Grant .

Parents Can Support All Saints' With Pupil Premium Grant Funding.

 

Pupil Premium is additional funding which the school can receive from the government to improve educational opportunities for children of families on low income. This grant includes the provision of Free School Meals for eligible families for all year groups in school. Even if your child is having a packed lunch or is an Infant who is receiving a Universal Free School Meal, the school asks all parents/carers to claim their entitlement to Pupil Premium/Free School Meals if they think they are eligible. It would actively benefit both your child and the school if you do, because we would receive extra funding from the government to support your child. Here are some of the ways we use this additional funding for families who qualify:

  • To cover the cost of before and after school clubs (e.g. football, dance, table tennis)
  • To reduce the cost of instrumental music lessons
  • To reduce the cost of extra-curricular visits such as the Y5 and Y6 residential journey
  • To provide additional learning support for your child’s learning and/or well-being

 

In order to claim for Pupil Premium/Free School Meals a parent/carer must be claiming one of the following benefits:

  • Income Support;
  • Income based Jobseekers Allowance;
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance;
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999;
  • Child Tax Credit provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190;
  • The Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit.
  • Universal Credit
