Pupil Premium Grant
The Pupil Premium Grant is an additional amount of funding given to schools by the Goverment for children considered to be disadvantaged. If a child has accessed Free School Meals at any point fromReception Class to Year 6, is a Looked-after child (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority or a child who has 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, they are entitled to this funding.
Although not classed as disadvantaged, Pupils in year groups reception to Year 6 recorded as an Ever 5 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence are also entitled to an amount of Pupil Premium funding.
We are required to publish online information about how we use this grant. Funded as per financial year, based on the census taken in the January prior to April 1st of that year (although doesn’t hit actual school account until start of school year in September but can be spent from April onwards).
