Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure 


The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.


  • Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority

  • Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order


At Stanhope primary school, in the academic year 2017/2018, the pupil premium grant was used to improve learning through quality first teaching, targeted provision, additional support and intervention. Some money was also be spent to enrich the wider experiences of children who may not have such opportunities outside of school. Our aim is to close the gap, in terms of attainment and/or progress between pupil premium eligible pupils and non-pupil premium pupils.
