Pupil Premium 

Pupil Premium


We aim to break down any barriers students may have to learning and achievement.  We want all young people at Wombourne High School to succeed.

What is Pupil Premium Funding?


Pupil Premium funding is allocated by The Secretary of State for Education in the form of the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). The PPG provides funding for two policies:

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential.

  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.



Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils in the following categories:

  • Those who have been in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the past 6 years.

  • Those who have been continuously looked after for the past six months.

  • Those who are adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 or who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order (Post LAC).

  • Those children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces or were eligible for funding in the last 4 years (Ever 4 Service Child).
