Pupil Premium Plus Grant (PPPG)

The PPPG provides additional £2300 of government funding for the education of children looked after (CLA). It is intended to be used to fund extra interventions for pupils in early year’s Reception to Year 11.  PPPG can help to drive up standards, support aspirations and narrow the gap in attainment. The allocation of Pupil Premium Plus Grant is linked to the completion of a high quality PEP for each child looked after to ensure that the money is being used effectively to support them to achieve their full educational potential.

Since April 2014 the distribution of Pupil Premium CLA has been managed by each Local Authority’s Virtual School Headteacher for looked after children. From 2015 this extends to the distribution of Early Years Pupil Premium for CLA.
