Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding at Maun


The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is allocated to schools based upon the number of children on roll from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals or have been eligible at some point within the last six years.  It also includes ‘looked after children’ (LAC) who are pupils who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more. The funding is provided for the specific purpose of increasing the attainment and progress of these groups of children.


An additional premium is provided based upon the number of pupils who have a parent working for the armed services. This service premium is not linked to disadvantage but instead, is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.


How is the Pupil Premium Grant used?

Our vision statement (see above) encapsulates the approach to learning which we take at Maun.  We are committed to ensuring success for all our children and our approach for our most vulnerable pupils will include:

  • High quality first teaching well-supported by highly-skilled teaching assistants
  • Intervention programmes carefully tailored to meet the needs of individuals and groups of children, including to target academic needs and those associated with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health)
  • Employing a Child and Family Support Worker to work collaboratively with our Pupil Premium families
  • Subsidising school visits and residentials so all pupils can participate in a range of first-hand experiences

Your child may be entitled to receive more funding in school if you receive one of the following benefits:


  • Universal Credit with annual net earned income of no more than £7,400
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after the person stops qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190
