How is the pupil premium being used at Normand Croft Community School?
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their peers. The PPG is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential.
The Government has used pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM), looked-after children and service children as indicators of deprivation and have provided a fixed amount of money for schools per pupil based on the number of pupils registered for FSM over a rolling six year period.
At Normand Croft we will be using the indicator of those eligible for FSM as well as identified vulnerable groups as our target children to ‘close the gap’ regarding attainment.
PPG represents a significant proportion of our budget. Our Pupil Premium Policy explains our approach to using the grant to support children’s progress.
