Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is an allowance from the Government given to schools for children who access or who have accessed free school meals in the last 6 years, are looked after or adopted, or have a parent serving with the armed forces. The grant is an amount per child and it is intended that schools use this money to close the gap in attainment between pupils and their peers.

At Whinstone we ensure that the Pupil Premium Grant children not only progress academically, but also become more confident, motivated individuals, by providing opportunities for cultural, personal and social development. Money is spent based on the child’s individual needs and interests. Please help us to provide the best support for your child by registering for free school meals if you are eligible. Registering for free school meals is confidential and taking up the free school meal is recommended but is not compulsory.
