Pupil Premium

Each year part of our school’s funding comes from the Pupil Premium Grant. This is Government funding aimed at supporting the education and life chances of disadvantaged children.

A child may be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) if their parents receive any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance (JSA)
  • 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 the parents are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax credit
  • Universal Credit – for those applying on or after 1 April 2018, their household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits they get). See the section below for protections in place for those affected by the introduction of this income threshold

Children may also get FSM if they receive any of these benefits directly, instead of through a parent.

This is explained on the GOV.UK website.

All children at our school (ie Year R, Year 1, Year 2) are entitled to have a free school meal everyday so you will need to apply separately for the Pupil Premium to help us to help your child.

Please be aware that a child must reside with the applicant to receive the Pupil Premium.

2020/21 COVID-19 Catch-Up Premium In 2020/21 the government provided additional funding for Catch-Up Premium and funding for tutorial programmes. The Catch-Up premium was £80 per pupil for all pupils, particularly disadvantaged, SEND and vulnerable pupils to receive the catch-up support needed to make substantial progress by the end of the academic year. There is an expectation that all pupils receive a high-quality education, and our curriculum remains broad and ambitious. When needed, remote education was high quality and safe and aligned as closely as possible with in-school provision. There was prioritisation within subjects of the most important components for progression.  The curriculum planning was informed by an assessment of pupils’ starting points and the need to address their learning gaps, we made use of regular formative assessment with a coherent plan to return to a normal curriculum by the end of summer 2021.
