Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium at Gillas Lane Primary Academy

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is allocated to support children who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), or have been over the last 6 years. The purpose of the grant is to raise attainment and remove barriers to learning. The grant is calculated using data from the census taken in January.

Gillas Lane Primary Academy Objectives

  • To track, monitor and and provide targeted support in order to close the gap between PP and non PP pupils
  • To work closely with parents and carers to promote and reward high levels of attendance and punctuality and commitment to the home school reading ethos
  • PP children to attain at the expected standard or better in writing and talk with enthusiasm about their academic future
