Pupil Premium is a government funding allowance that is additional to main school funding. It was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to support children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years, for children who are looked after by the Local Authority or adopted and children who have parents in the armed forces.
School decides how to best use the Pupil Premium funding to provide additional support to individual children to ensure they reach their full potential. Anns Grove is committed to ensuring that all children have access to a full, engaging curriculum, the best teaching and learning and carefully targeted support.
‘Pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs or disability, all make at least expected progress and a high proportion make rapid progress from their starting points.’ (Ofsted 2016)
In 2018-19 146 of our children were eligible for Pupil Premium, providing a total of £178,800 of Pupil Premium funding.

Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium Funding that may be used to help your child.

Measuring the Impact of PPG Spending
The school will evaluate the impact on each pupil at the end of each half term. Evaluation will focus on academic progress and how children’s self-confidence has developed as a consequence of the intervention.
If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) for information. Alternatively you can:
