Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with disadvantaged students. 

Students eligible for Pupil Premium Funding in 2015 – 2016:

  • Students in years 7 to 11 who received Free School Meals (FSM) or who have done so at any stage in the last 6 years (Ever 6 FSM)
  • Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority
  • 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

In addition, pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as ‘Ever 5 Service Child’ (a child who has a parent in the Forces or who has had so at any time in the last 5 years) or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence, receive Pupil Premium funding.

Pupil Premium funding  is allocated to close the gap between ‘disadvantaged’ students and those in the ‘Other’ / Never 6 group
