Pupil Premium

The Government has introduced the term ‘Pupil Premium’ to encompass all students who are either In Care, in receipt of Free School Meals or whose parents are actively serving in the Armed Forces. Recently, the Service Premium has been extended to include those whose parents have died in action and those whose parents have left the Service since April 2011 for other reasons, including injury.
 
 
 
 
Visit the Government's Pupil Premium website by clicking here.



Financial Support

If your child is within the Pupil Premium Cohort (Free School Meals, Ever6 rule, Child in Care, parent active in the Armed Forces, died in action or left due to injury) then, subject to approval, we are able to fund up to 50% of the cost of any school event that links to the curriculum, whether inside or outside of school. We are also able to supply any revision books your child would benefit from or peripatetic lessons. 
 
If you have a query regarding Pupil Premium please contact Mrs Witts for further information.

What you need to know about the six year rule 'Ever6'
The Government has decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium will be extended to pupils who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six  years. Children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the past generally have poorer academic results than those who have never been eligible for FSM. These pupils therefore should benefit from the additional support the Pupil Premium funding will be able to provide.
 
Why extend coverage to six years?
There is a particular issue with the under-reporting of FSM amongst secondary school pupils. Extending eligibility to those eligible for FSM in the past six years means that a child previously registered in the last year of primary education will remain eligible for the Pupil Premium up to Year 11.

Adopted from Care

Schools are now asked to include in the data return all children adopted from care and not just those who were adopted from care after 30 December 2005. All are now eligible to attract the Pupil Premium Grant to raise achievement. Parents will need to self-declare to schools that their children are adopted by showing the school the Adoption Order so that we can add their names to the next census.
