Wainscott Primary School Pupil Premium Grant

What is Pupil Premium Grant funding?

The 'Pupil Premium' is direct government funding for schools designed to ensure that all pupils make the best possible progress whilst in school, regardless of their socio-economic background. A sum of money (£1,320) is given to the school for each pupil on role who is currently or who has ever been in receipt of means tested 'Free School Meals' (as opposed to the Universal Infant Free School Meals), this is also known as Ever 6 funding.

There is also funding given for any child looked after, either in foster care or in Local Authority care pupil, as well as any child post looked after, either adopted, in special guardianship or with a residence order. This is a sum of £2,300 and held by Virtual Schools for children looked after and the school for post looked after.

There is a small sum of £300 for any child with a parent currently serving in the British Armed Forces.


While all children in our EYFS and KS1 receive Universal Infant Free School Meals, your children could benefit in other ways if an application for PPG is applied for.

If your child is eligible for free school meals, they’ll remain eligible until they finish the phase of schooling (primary or secondary) they’re in on 31 March 2022.
