The Pupil Premium Funding (PPF) was introduced in April 2011 to provide additional support for children who are Looked After (LAC) and those from low income families, including those eligible for free school meals, either currently or within the last 6 years (FSM).
The Service Child (SC) pupil premium is paid to schools for those pupils whose parents are in the armed forces.
There is also an Early Years pupil premium for children who are not yet statutory school age.
Once a family is deemed as no longer eligible for Pupil Premium funding, the child will continue to be allocated money for 6 years after this date (Ever 6).
The individual context and demographic of our school has been taken into account when considering how to acknowledge and address potential issues and barriers to learning a child may experience during their time at St George's. The funding is used by school to help narrow the attainment gap between those children eligible to receive additional funding and those who are not eligible. The school decides where and how to best use this funding, to ensure every child reaches their full potential and flourishes at St George's School.
If you believe your child may be eligible for this funding, please speak to the school office.
If any parent or guardian wishes to discuss the use of their child's Pupil Premium funding, please speak to Mrs Accastello, Head Teacher.
Our Pupil Premium Governor is Jenny Hewitt who can be contacted via the school office.
The Pupil Premium strategy is reviewed termly following progress measures and discussion with staff, parents and children.
