CofE Primary School Securing Achievement for a Successful Future

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low income families. It is intended to enable schools to provide targeted support to help children reach their full potential.

 

Funding is allocated for children who are looked after by the Local Authority (CLA) and for every child who is registered for Free School Meals.

 

Purpose of Pupil Premium (from the DfE Website)

  • The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
  • In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
  • 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 low-income families. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by Pupil Premium.

Definitions of groups

Ever 6 FSM

The pupil premium for 2018 to 2019 will include pupils recorded in the January 2018 school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) since May 2012, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2018. “Ever 6 FSM” means those pupils recorded on the January School Census who were recorded as known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) on any of the termly censuses since Summer 2012. Each pupil will only be counted once: for example, if a pupil on the January Census is recorded as known to be eligible for FSM and was recorded as known to be eligible for FSM on the Summer and Autumn Censuses, they will be counted as one Ever 6 FSM pupil for calculating allocations for the PPG in 2018-2019.

Children adopted from care or who have left care

The pupil premium for 2018 to 2019 will include pupils recorded in the January 2018 school census and alternative provision census who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order). These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.
