How is the PPG allocated at Southfield?

What is Pupil Premium? 

Mrs Williams is our Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) Champion.

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011. The funding, received as an addition sum to the general annual grant (calculated using the total number of children on roll), is based on school census figures for the following children:

Those eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past six years

Those who have been adopted, or have a special guardianship, residence or child arrangements order in place

Those recorded as a service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence

Eligibility for Free School Meals

Families who are in receipt of one or more of the following are entitled to free school meals and by registering, unlock vital funding that the school can use to support their child:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on, paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit
