Pupil Premium 2023 - 2024


To register your child for Pupil Premium please use this link. 

In November 2023, our Pupil Premium lead will meet with the Chair Of Governors (also PP governor) to discuss the outcomes from the strategy and focus areas for 2023 - 2024.

At Greenfield Primary School, we believe that all children are entitled to an education which allows every child to achieve their potential regardless of their starting point in life or personal circumstances. The government believes that the additional funding provided for Pupil Premium children is the best way to tackle those inequalities to enable children to have the best outcomes.

Which pupils are entitled to Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is provided to all schools to support pupils within the following categories:

  • Pupils who are currently registered for Free School Meals.
  • Pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals at any point during the last six years;
  • Pupils in the care of a Local Authority;
  • Pupils who have been adopted but have been looked after for one day or more, or were adopted from care on or after 30th December 2005 and left care under:
  • A Special Guardianship Order on or after 30th December 2005
  • A Residence Order on or after 14th October 1991
  • Pupils whose parents are serving with the UK Armed Forces

How do we encourage parents to register their child’s eligibility?

Registering is quick and easy by using the link at the top of this page or this one. If you need any help, please speak to Miss Brunskill in the office or Mrs Wright.  It will not affect any other benefits you are claiming and no families will know that you have registered.  

What is Pupil Premium spent on?

The decision about how the individual schools use their Pupil Premium is left to each school with the expectation that they will close the gap in attainment and progress between those eligible and other children nationally. “It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” (DfE). Therefore, schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support these pupils. Measures are included in the performance tables which capture the achievement of those disadvantaged pupils covered by the grant.



In September 2023,  EEF Guide to the Pupil Premium was updated and published by the Education Endowment Foundation.  This supports schools in spending their Pupil Premium to maximise the benefit for their students. The report recommends school take a tiered approach to Pupil Premium spending. Teaching should be the top priority, including professional development, training and support for early career teachers and recruitment and retention. Targeted support for struggling pupils should also be a key component of an effective Pupil Premium strategy; as well as strategies that relate to non-academic factors, including improving attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support.  As a school we have used the information and research within this report to guide our spending of Pupil Premium money.

How is funding used at Greenfield Primary School?

At Greenfield Primary, we use funding in a range of ways to support all pupils including those who qualify for Pupil Premium. In September 2021, we moved to the three year plan which is a comprehensive plan of how we will do our best to allow our pupils to meet their full potential.   Class teachers and teaching assistants know which children are identified as pupil premium and, in termly pupil progress reviews, these children are a specific focus group.  At the end of the academic year, we  analyse the impact of any additional support, interventions and strategies used to ensure they provide best value and that progress has been made. Our Chair Of Governors (PP lead governor) is involved in these discussions.  Outcomes of the year's focus areas are considered when planning focus areas for the next academic year.
