Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) at WJGS

At Winterbourne Junior Girls’ School we receive additional funding from the government through the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). The grant is to fund interventions that close the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. Nationally, 64% of pupils eligible for Free School Meals achieve the expected level at the end of Key Stage Two in reading, writing and mathematics combined, compared to 82% of other pupils (results 2014).

To be eligible for Pupil Premium, a pupil must be one of the following:

  • Receiving Free school meals (FSM) within the last six years
  • Children who are looked after (CLA) or have left Local Authority Care because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order, or a residence order
  • Children of Armed Forces personnel


Our overriding priority is to improve the progress of our pupils and to close the gap in attainment between our disadvantaged pupils and their peers. Our spending is on items that we believe will have a measurable impact on the progress, attainment and well-being of the pupils. The impact of each item is
actively evaluated. Plans may be subject to change in the light of results and impact.
