Article 27: Every child has the right to food, clothing, a safe place to live and to have your basic needs met. You should not be disadvantaged so that you can not do many of the things other children can do.
Strategy for allocation of PPG
Every school receives additional funding for children who are entitled to free school meals; who have been ’Looked After’ for 6 months or more; and for children from families in the armed forces. This funding also includes children who have been entitled to free school meals at some point in the last 6 years.
Here at Penwortham we aim to ensure that all children have the same access to the curriculum, life experiences and resources to enhance their learning. Often there is a concern that a stigma is attached to low income families, at Penwortham we treat anything around free school meals with confidentiality. We do not assume that children from these families are less able, we believe everyone can believe, achieve and succeed. Please see our Pupil Premium Strategy 201920 to see how we achieve this.
