Invicta Grammar School Pupil Premium Funding

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is a government grant that is given to schools to help them support those children that are the most disadvantaged, with a focus on raising attainment.  

In the 2019-20 financial year, all schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

•    £935 for secondary-aged pupils

Schools will receive £2,300 for any pupil:

  • identified in the January 2018 school census or the alternative provision census as having left local authority care as a result of:
    • adoption
    • a special guardianship order
    • a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)
  • who has been in local authority care for 1 day or more
  • recorded as both eligible for FSM in the last 6 years and as being looked after (or as having left local authority care)

For pupils who attract the £2,300 rate, the virtual school head of the local authority that looks after the pupil will manage the funding.

In addition to this funding, schools are allocated funding to support the children whose parents are Service Men or Women.


Invicta Grammar School uses its Pupil Premium funding to help pay for a range of opportunities including support that is available for students as and when they might need it.  This includes recommended and requested support.

Students at Invicta Grammar School are encouraged to participate in a range of educational opportunities and activities to complement their academic work.  This includes participation in the school’s Broadening Horizons programme and activities such as The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, peripatetic music lessons, support with travel, educational school trips including language exchanges.  Support is also given with the purchase of specialist equipment and uniform.  

The school writes to the parents of eligible students at the beginning of the school year to clarify in which areas support can be offered and to provide information about the process which is simplified to encourage requests.  

In 2018-2019, (September 2018 – August 2019) Invicta Grammar School was allocated £91,269.00.  

Details of the spending for 2018-19 were:
