The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past six years or has been looked after for one day or more (Child Looked After) the school receives an amount of money per child (see below).
Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 as recorded as Ever 6 FSM – £1,320
Looked after children (LAC) defined in Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority – £1,900
Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order – £1,900
Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of child pension from the Ministry of Defence – £300
