Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children . This is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers. Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, lack of confidence and issues with attendance and punctuality.

 

  • Eligibility for Pupil Premium 

    There are three categories of pupils eligible for pupil premium: 

  • Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been eligible at any point in the last 6 years
  • Children in Care (CiC) or adopted
  • Children of Armed Forces Personnel 

    A child may be able to access free school meals if the parent/carer is in receipt of one or more of the following: 

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • 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 income that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
