Pupil Premium and Strategy 

What is pupil premium funding?

The Secretary of State for Education lays down the following terms and conditions on which assistance is given in relation to the pupil premium grant (PPG) payable to schools and local authorities for the financial year beginning 1st April.  PPG provides funding for two policies:

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.

The pupil premium for 2020 to 2021 will include pupils recorded in the 2021 (January 21st) school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) since May 2014, as well as those first known to be eligible in January 2021.

Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils in the following categories:

  • Who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) since the age of four in year groups reception to Year Six (£1,345)
  • Who have been continuously looked after for the past six months (£2,345 per child)
  • Who are adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 or who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order (post LAC) £2,345 per child.
  • Those children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces or were eligible for funding in the last four years (Ever 4 service child) £310

 Our 2019/2020 allocation was £98,540. The census on January 21st 2021 will confirm numbers and the associated pupil premium finance for 2020-2021.

Evaluating the pupil premium’s impact in the 2019 to 2020 academic year presents difficulties as a result of reduced numbers of pupils having attended between March and July 2020.
