Pupil Premium


Pupil premium 2019-20

Indicative amount taken from last years figures are £ 45,850. School receives a monthly amount into the budget based on numbers of eligible pupils. CLA pupils now receive their funding on a termly basis and school has to itemise funding allocations and evaluate impact for these pupils.


What is Pupil Premium Funding? Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to publicly funded schools to help raise the achievements of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and special schools. Schools decide how the pupil premiums funding is to be spent and are held accountable for their use of the additional monies to support pupils from low-income families and the impact this has on their achievement/attainment. Children who are eligible for pupil premium funding are:

· Children currently registered as eligible for free school meals due to family circumstances (not including all KS1 children who now receive free meals due to their age) including those children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years.

 · Looked After Children

· Children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.


Pupil Premium Grant (FSM)

All pupils who are in receipt of Free School Meals and those who have been eligible within the last six years (Ever 6) receive a pupil premium grant.

Primary pupils receive £1,320 per year.

Secondary pupils receive £935 per year.

The aim of the funding is to ensure an equality of opportunity and to ensure that pupils are not disadvantaged due to reduced income within the household. The funding enables schools to offer additional support to pupils so that they are able to achieve as well as their non FSM peers.

Post Looked After Arrangement (PLAA)

Each pupil who is in a PLAA receives £1,900 per year.

The aim of this funding is to ensure an equality of opportunity and to ensure that pupils are not disadvantaged due to their unsettled start to life. The funding enables schools to offer additional support to pupils so that they are able to achieve as well as their non PLAA peers.
