South Lake Primary School – Pupil Premium Funding
At South Lake, we believe that every child is entitled to succeed. We have used research information and considered the needs of our own pupils in deciding the most effective way to use the Pupil Premium grant.
Schools receive a payment (Pupil Premium Grant – PPG) for children in particular categories as follows:
- Children who are currently eligible or have been eligible in the past 6 years for Free School Meals (FSM)
- Looked After Children
- Children of members of the Armed Forces
The funding is used to support the learning, development and achievement of these children.
