Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in Reception to Year 11.  This category now includes any child that has been registered for FSM in the past 6 years (known as “Ever 6 FSM”).

For looked after children the Pupil Premium is calculated using the Children Looked After data returns (SSDA903).

A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it has been used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

The DfE has given us the freedom to use the Pupil premium as we see fit, based upon our knowledge of our pupil needs.  “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.”

However, we are accountable for the use of this additional funding.
