Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low income families who currently are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) and children who are looked after or adopted from care. This includes all children who have been eligible for FSM at any time in the last 6 years. Service children are also allocated additional funding.
In the 2018 to 2019, schools receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
• £1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6
Schools also receive £2,300 for each pupil who is in local-authorty care or has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:
• a special guardianship order
• a child arrangements order
• a residence order
Children with a parent who has served in the armed forces at any point in the last 4 years, receive a grant of £300.
Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium allocation as they see fit. However, they will be held to account for how the funding has been used to support pupils from low income families. Schools are required to publish online information about how this funding is used.
We ensure that pupils receive maximum benefit from this funding by …
- Regular monitoring of eligible pupils to ensure they are making good progress and receiving high-quality, targeted interventions if needed.
- Interviewing pupils to get their views on their educational experience.
- Producing a detailed report for the governing body on Pupil Premium expenditure and its impact for our pupils.
- Regularly adjusting provision to ensure effectiveness and value-for-money.
If you feel that your child is eligible for, but not currently receiving, Pupil Premium funding, please inform the school.
Your child does not need to have Free School Meals, but they must be registered in order to access the funding.
Children in Key Stage 1, who all receive Free School Meals as a matter of course, should still be registered.
