Pupil Premium Expenditure
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.
The Lenham 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 The Lenham School are encouraged to participate in a range of educational opportunities and activities to complement their academic work. This includes peripatetic music lessons, support with travel and educational school trips including residential trips. Support is also given with the purchase of specialist equipment and uniform.
The PPG per-pupil rate for 2020 to 2021 is as follows:
|Pupil premium per pupil|
