Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.  Recovery Premium is additional funding to address gaps in attainment that have grown wider as a result of the partial closure of schools in 2020 and 2021 and is based on the number of pupils in school who qualify for PPG.


The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is aimed at reception to Year 11 pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).  This category now includes any child who has been registered for FSM in the past 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

The funding also covers children in care aged 4–15 years who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months. These are referred to as Children Looked After (CLA).  A service premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are serving in the armed forces. We always ensure that matters regarding the use of the Pupil Premium Grant are treated sensitively and with discretion.  We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils and we recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.

In the academic year 2023-24, Whitehorse Manor Infant School will have an allocation of £194,970 Pupil Premium Grant based on last year’s pupil numbers.

In the academic year 2023-24, Whitehorse Manor Infant School will have an allocation of £19,720 of Recovery Premium based on the number of pupils qualifying for PPG.

Whitehorse Manor Infant School Pupil Premium Strategy Plan for the academic year 2023/24

There were no end of key stage tests in 2020 or 2021 due to the partial closure of schools.  Trends in previous external data, internal data and in response to learning audits post-Lockdown have identified challenges, which we aim to overcome using our funding this academic year.  These are outlined in our Pupil Premium Strategy Plan attached.
