Pupil Premium

Home / Monkwearmouth Academy / Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced by the Government in April 2011 and is paid in addition to main school funding, its purpose is to raise the attainment and progress of disadvantaged students. The Government has used students entitled to Free School Meals as an indicator for deprivation and the funding helps to tackle those inequalities of those students who need it most.

PPG is allocated to the Academy for students who have either registered for Free School Meals at any point within the last six years (£935 per student), Looked After Children (£1900 per student) and children of services personnel (£300 per student). For the academic year 2018/2019 28.2% of students of Monkwearmouth Academy students are eligible for PPG and we received £217,768 in funding.

The DfE holds schools to account on their use of the PPG through performance tables which include data on:
• The attainment of the students who attract the funding
• The progress made by these students
• The gap in attainment between disadvantaged students and their peers.
