Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium Funding at St Andrew and St Francis CE Primary

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority, Children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.

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.

Definitions of groups

Ever 6 FSM

The pupil premium for 2017 to 2018 will include pupils recorded in the January 2017 school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) since May 2011, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2017. “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 2011. 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 2017-2018.

Children adopted from care or who have left care

The pupil premium for 2017 to 2018 will include pupils recorded in the January 2017 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.

Ever 6 Service Child

For the purposes of these grant conditions, ever 6 service child means a pupil recorded in the January 2017 school census who was eligible for the service child premium since the January 2012 census as well as those recorded as a service child for the first time on the January 2017 school census.

The grant will be allocated as set out in sections 4, 5 and 6 below. Where national curriculum year groups do not apply to a pupil, the pupil will attract PPG if aged 4 to 15 as recorded in the January 2017 school census.
