Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is a grant given to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers, and to support pupils with parents in the armed forces.

Schools receive money for each pupil of compulsory age who fits the eligibility criteria. There are five categories of eligibility with different amounts of funding attached.

Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as 'ever 6 free school meals (FSM)'

£1,320

Pupils in year groups 7 to 11 recorded as 'ever 6 FSM'

£935

Looked after children (LAC)

£1,900

Post-LAC

£1,900

Pupils with parents in the armed forces

£300

A school’s grant allocations are based on the number of eligible pupils recorded on the January 2017 census.

The grant may be spent in the following ways:

  • for the purposes of the school, that is for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
  • for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies
  • on community facilities; for example, services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated
  • The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year beginning 1 April 2017, some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.

You can find this information in the conditions of grant for pupil premium allocations in the 2017-18 financial year, published by the Department for Education (DfE) and the Education Funding Agency (EFA), the predecessor to the current Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).

 

 

 

Pupil Premium 2015/2016

The Pupil Premium 2015/2016 was allocated to local authorities and schools for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, are ‘children looked after (CLA)’ continually for more than 6 months at any time in the last six years, and service children i.e. children of parents in the armed services.

In addition to CLA from 2015-2016 children adopted under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 also received additional Pupil Premium of £1,900 per learner.

Schools continue to have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying school budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.  Schools have a duty to report on their use of Pupil Premium.

In the year 2015/2016 Brooklands School had 16 learners who were eligible for Pupil Premium.
