Principles for PPG Allocation at WSFG

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the students
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for students who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged students, we recognise that not all students who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals
  • We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any student or groups of students the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals
