Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


Pupil Premium Grant

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to help disadvantaged pupils to raise attainment and improve progress. All schools are required to publish online the amount of Pupil Premium received and how this is being used. At Sheldwich Primary School we ensure that funds are used effectively, supplemented if necessary by the school’s budget to provide additional support in teaching and learning as well as assisting parents and carers with the cost of school trips and activities.
