Icklesham Church of England Primary School – The Pupil Premium Grant
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding given to schools so that they can support particular groups of pupils who are known to be at risk of underachievement and to help schools to close the attainment gap between those pupils and their peers. The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools for pupils, in Years R to 11, who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been eligible for FSM in the past six years (Ever 6). The Pupil Premium in 2018-2019 is £1320 per pupil, the same as in 2017/18. Pupil Premium is also allocated for children who have been looked after by the local authority (CLA). In East Sussex Pupil Premium for CLA is managed by the Virtual School for Children in Care. Pupil premium for CLA is £2300 per pupil in 2018-2019. In 2017-2018 this was £1900. Pupil Premium Grant is also paid for children whose parents are currently in the Armed Forces. This premium is £300.
