Pupil Premium Spending and Impact 2014-15 and 2015-16

In addition to our main school budget we also receive a ‘Pupil Premium’ which is a fixed sum of money designed to help children that are considered to be ‘disadvantaged’ according to the Department for Education (DfE) criteria. We have decided that there are many ways in which we can help those children in school. All children in our care are valued, respected and encouraged to achieve their true potential irrespective of need.

Pupil Premium was introduced on 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with children who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as the ‘Ever6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for pupils who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, for children of service personnel and (since July 2014) for children who have left local authority care because of one of the following:

 Adoption

 Special guardianship order

 Child arrangement order

 Residence order

Parents can register their child for free school meals if you are in receipt of any of these benefits:

 Income Support

 Income based Jobseekers Allowance

 Income related Employment and Support Allowance

 Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

 The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

 Child tax Credit (provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of more than £16,190)

 Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

 Universal Credit

All figures are based on the children in school at the time of the January census for the following financial year.
