Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was first introduced in April 2011 and is paid directly to school in each budget year by means of a specific grant based on our School Census figures.

It is allocated based on the number of pupils on roll (in the January census) from Year R (Reception) to Year 6 who have been registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. This pupil premium is known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’ funding.

School also receives additional funding directly when there are pupils on roll who have left Local Authority care because of adoption or a special guardianship order or a child arrangement order or a residence order. This Pupil Premium is known as ‘Post-LAC’ funding.

Extra funding is also allocated directly to schools to support children with parents/carers in the Regular Armed Forces based on information from the January School Census. Pupils attract this Service Premium if they meet the following criteria: one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces or one of their parents served in the regular armed forces in the last five years or one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil is in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS). The Service Premium is designed to support these pupils by providing additional pastoral support. This Pupil Premium is known as ‘Ever 5 Service’ funding.

Children who have been in Local Authority care for one day or more also attract Pupil Premium funding. Funding for these pupils does not go directly to school; instead it goes to the Virtual School Head (VSH) in the Local Authority that looks after the child. The VSH is responsible for managing pupil premium funding for Looked After Children and our school applies to the VSH for the funding for any looked after children on the school roll.
