Ethelbert Road is committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential. Vulnerable pupils need additional support in order to achieve their full potential and this support is given via the Pupil Premium Grant. This funding is additional to the main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils who are, or have been eligible for free school meals in the past six years; pupils who are, or have previously been 'looked after' (in the care of the local authority); and children of service families. Free school meals for children in Reception, Year one and Year two are not funded by the Pupil Premium Grant.
How the Pupil Premium Grant is used
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is used to continue our aim to ensure that every child achieves their full potential, makes at least expected progress, has fair access to experiences and has good mental health and wellbeing. We are determined to nurture and encourage the creative and sporting interests, abilities and unique talents of all our pupils.
