The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is a Department for Education funding scheme to help improve the life chances of pupils from a disadvantaged background. Funding to each school is based on the number of pupils who fall within a set of agreed categories. Those children who are eligible are those in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM), those who have been looked after (LAC) for more than 6 months and children of armed services personnel.
TMBSS receive funding for those children who fall into the categories outlined above and are exclusively attending (have sole registration) one of our provisions. The number of children fluctuates due to the nature of our service being a short term provision. Therefore funding is calculated proportionately, based on the January School census. The Service’s Pupil Premium Strategy will be reviewed at the start of each academic year.
The following is a summary of the funding received by TMBSS and how it has been used to benefit the children of the service.
