Pupil Premium Grant

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) in 2011. The PPG is given in addition to schools’ main funding and is allocated to children from low-income families.

In 2021-22, schools received funding for the following groups of pupils:

  • Pupils who have been recorded as being eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
  • Pupils who are in the care of, or are provided accommodation by, a Local Authority.
  • Pupils who are no longer looked after by a Local Authority because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order, or a residence order.
  • If you think your child/children may be eligible for the PPG, you should use the link below to check – you will need your full name, date of birth and National Insurance Number (or National Asylum Seeker Service Number).

At the Convent of Jesus and Mary Catholic Infant School & Nursery we believe that every child should be supported to achieve their full potential regardless of their background. The effective use of the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) will support us in achieving this.



We will report to the Curriculum and Catholicity Committee, the Resources and Finance Committee, and the Full Governing Board on:

  • The progress made towards diminishing the differences.
  • An outline of the targeted provision in place and the impact it has had on pupils’ outcomes.
  • The impact of the targeted provision and its cost effectiveness.

The Governing Board will ensure that there is an annual statement to parents on how the Pupil Premium Grant has been used and ensure the school has effectively ‘diminished the differences’ between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.

The Link Governor for Pupil Premium is Mr Hanlon.
