Pupil Premium Funding Report

2016 - 2017

Pupil Premium Grant Report

The Pupil Premium Grant is designed to ensure that funding to support disadvantaged children reaches the pupils who need it most.

The funding is given to schools with pupils from Reception to Year 11 who are:

  • Eligible for free school meals (FSM),

  • Looked after by the Local Authority – Children in Care.

  • Have parents currently in the Armed Forces.

In 2011/2012 the funding given was £488 per child, £200 for children of Armed Forces Families. This rose to £600 and £250 respectively in 2012/2013.

From April 2012 the Premium Grant was widened to include those eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years. (Ever 6 Funding.) The funding allocated per child from April 2013 was £900.

In April 2014 the allocation rose to £1300 per child. £1900 is available to support looked after and adopted pupils. £300 is available for children of Armed Forces Families.

As a school we are aware of all the vulnerable children in our school, and recognise that not all FSM pupils are vulnerable. We also recognise that some children who need additional support do not have Free School Meals.

All infant school pupils now receive a free school meal. As a school we have asked parents to continue to provide information confidentially to ensure that children can still access the support they are entitled to.
