The Pupil Premium Grant is an additional funding stream and involves schools receiving a sum of money to enable them to target pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The Education Funding Agency states that PPG provides funding for two policies:
- raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers
- supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces
