The Pupil Premium is grant funding direct from the Government and is in addition to the school's Delegated Budget. It is allocated to children who are on Free School Meals (FSM) or who have ever received FSM over the last  6 years, children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, children who are adopted or service children.

This link below is in particular to information regarding  Pupil Premium Plus for Looked After Children

From April 2015 all early years providers who deliver Government funded early education will be able to claim the early years pupil premium for three and four year old children whose parents are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Universal Credit
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax credit run-on

Three and four year olds will also be eligible if:

  • They have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more in England or Wales
  • They have been adopted from care in England or Wales
  • They have left care through a special guardianship order or a child arrangement order in England or Wales

Children must be receiving free Early Years education. However, they do not have to take up their full entitlement to 570 hours in order to receive the funding.

All schools can decide how best to spend this money but must report on and publicise annually how the money has been spent and what the impact has been on the achievement of the pupils.

Please see the 'reporting pupil premium funding' section regarding how we are spending the pupil premium, the impact of this funding, and any future plans for further spending
