Pupil Premium Grant Funding (Expenditure and Impact)
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers. We ensure that funding reaches those who are disadvantaged and therefore need it the most. The PPG is allocated to the school and it is for schools to decide how the PPG (allocated to school per FSM pupil) is spent. This is because as a school we best placed to assess the individual pupils for whom we are responsible. Although we are free to spend the fund as we see fit, we are held accountable for how we have spent it and the impact this has had on our children.
Matching Green C of E Primary School
Matching Green C of E Primary School is a vertically grouped Church of England School where our pupils learn within a Christian environment, developing an understanding of the values and teachings of the church, as well as a knowledge and respect for all religions, faiths and cultures. The school is also a member of the Epping Forest Rural Local Delivery Group. Working closely with parents, governors and the wider community, we provide a caring and happy environment where every child matters and where all children will be nurtured and guided to develop a thirst for learning. Our school is an inclusive school and offers to meet the needs of all pupils and their families. We have a shared expectation that all pupils, regardless of their background, religion or Special Educational Need, will be given inclusive, quality teaching. This will ensure that our pupils are high achievers, confident learners and feel that they are a valued member of our school community. Fundamentally, we are a totally unique family centred, Christian community where every individual is valued and their successes celebrated.
