Pupil Premium Funding

What is Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)?

The aim of the Pupil Premium Grant is to support schools in raising the achievement of their most disadvantaged pupils. More specifically, it is hoped that these pupils will benefit from increased social mobility and have improved chances of accessing higher education. Schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit.

National research shows that children who have been eligible for Free School Meals, at any point in their school career, have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible.

It is self-evident that pupils claiming Free School Meals, and those who are looked after at Dysart School already fall into the key group that is vulnerable to underachievement, namely severe and complex learning disabilities. Therefore, it can be argued that the application of the PPG can have wider benefits to all pupils at Dysart School.
