Pupil and Sports Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly-funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between them and their peers.

The funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools such as special schools and pupil referral units.

Who is the Pupil Premium for?

The Pupil Premium is primarily aimed at Reception to Year 11 pupils who are from low-income families and are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or who have been registered for FSM at any point in the past six years.

How much is the Pupil Premium Funding?

In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, schools will receive the following pupil premium grant for eligible pupils:

  • Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 as recorded as Ever 6 FSM – £1,320
  • Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM – £935
  • Looked after children (LAC) defined in Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority £1,900
  • Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order – £1,900
  • Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of child pension from the Ministry of Defence – £300
  • Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 as recorded as Ever 6 FSM – £1,320

How Can You Help?

School funding is based on a formula which, among many other elements, includes the number of children who are entitled to Free School Meals.

Even if your child does not wish to take Free School Meals but is entitled to receive them, it is beneficial to the school for the eligibility to be recorded as we receive additional funding for your child for six years. This is especially important now that all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive automatic free school meals.

If you think you are entitled to claim for Free School Meals, please call into the school office for an application form or the school office will happily send one to you.
