Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium+ Grants for children

In April 2014 the school received additional funding under the title Pupil Premium. This money is to be used to enhance the learning experiences of the children and to work with vulnerable families in order to raise achievement. The impact of progress Pupil Premium children make is measured termly. The school received £109,000.00 of Pupil Premium Grant this academic year.

In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, schools receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,300 for pupils in reception year to year 6
  • £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

Schools also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they attract the £1,900 rate.

Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils doesn’t go to their school; it goes to the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child.

Please see below for our action plan for this year and a report of the impact of last year's Pupil Premium Grant.

If you are eligible for free school meals and have not yet applied- please pop into the office or download the form below and return to the school.

 

From April 2015, Early Years children will become eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant. Please contact the school office to register or have a chat with Sharon or Mrs Andrews. This money really does make a difference to the learning opportunities we can provide for your child and your family...
