Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium                                                                                                                                          

 

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (“FSM”) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children of Service Families and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

 

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from these families. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium. From September 2012, schools have been required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This ensures that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.

 

Income

The pupil premium allocation for 2015-16 is £25,780 and the allocation for 2016-17 is £19,080.  This figure is based on current FSM and Ever6 (Ever6 counts children in the last six years who have received free school meals whether or not they are current pupils or still in receipt of FSM), plus LAC and Service Children funding.
