Pupil Premium Grant Funding
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, (which is additional to main school funding), is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM), Children in Service families, Looked after children, children with a history of FSM and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle the disadvantaged reaches the pupils who need it most.
The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) gives providers of Early Years education extra funding to support disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.
Early Years providers are any organisation that offers education for children aged under 5, including nurseries and childminders.
The EYPP premium was introduced in April 2015. Langford will use this extra funding to improve the quality of education for disadvantaged children.
Ofsted inspections will report on whether providers spend their EYPP funding effectively.
