The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is intended to close the progress and attainment gap between disadvantaged Free School Meals children and their peers.
In the case of the Service Child premium, the money is allocated to provide support for their emotional and social well-being and the funding is usually directed towards additional pastoral care.

Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) and Pupil Premium
From September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in state-funded schools in England will be provided with free school meals.
This includes infant pupils in maintained infant and primary schools, free schools, academies, schools for pupils with special educational needs and pupil referral units. Pupils at maintained nursery schools, direct grant nursery schools, independent schools and general hospital schools are not included.
Previously children registered for free school meals brought in additional Pupil Premium Grant funding. Any child registered for free school meals in January 2014 already qualifies but if your child is in Reception or now meets the criteria for FSM it could attract extra funding for the school.
Although the government’s initiative now provides universal free school meals your child will only attract the additional funding if you meet the criteria and register.
