Bourne Grammar School

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is used to raise attainment of disadvantaged students and close the ‘in-school gap’ and the gap between our disadvantaged students and those nationally. The School wishes to raise the attainment and progress of disadvantaged students of all abilities and give them the opportunity to reach their potential.

The School receives the PPG allocation directly from the Education, Skills and Funding Agency (ESFA).  Although the PPG is allocated for the financial year, Bourne Grammar School converts the allocation to match the academic year, which coincides with the whole-school budget and reporting cycles.

Schools also receive funding for students with parents in the regular Armed Forces.  The DfE states that the Service Premium a school receives may be used to contribute towards the pastoral support of students and this is another key aim for the School.

Schools determine how their allocation is spent and students/parents do not receive an individual allocation.  The only exception is for a Looked-after Child, where the Virtual School Head (form the Local Authority) receives the allocation.

The Governors are currently reviewing the Pupil Premium strategy for 2018-19 and evaluating the effectiveness of the 2017-18 strategy.  The relevant information will be published here in due course.  Please email if you have any queries.
