  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support from National Asylum Support Service (NASS) under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.

Children in receipt of the Pupil Premium are entitled to:

  • Attend any school trip free of charge

  • Personalised learning plans
  • Home Learning Pack

What are the benefits for the school?

The extra funding contributes towards:

  • Staff training with a focus on attainment for all
  • Additional staff across the school
  • Extra interventions where needed
  • Please see our PPG strategy statement below for further details

Please contact the school office if you think you may be able to apply or apply via the misleadingly titled "free school meal" link on the Kingston. gov website.

As in previous years, we will continue to use the pupil premium to improve the attainment of our PPG pupils. The disproportionately high impact of COVID-19 on the education of our pupils makes this more important than ever.

We are required to:

  • use our recovery premium alongside our pupil premium funding and report on our use of them as a single sum in our strategy statement
  • use the new template to publish our strategy statement - see condition 8 of the conditions of grant
  • publish our strategy statement by 31 December - this enables us to take the needs of our new intake into account
  • demonstrate how we are spending and how our decisions are informed by a range of evidence - see condition 7 of the conditions of grant

Our Pupil Premium Strategy 2023/24 will be published by December 31st 2023 in light of the new guidance above
