Pupil Premium Overview

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.

Nationally, the statistics show that students who are in receipt of free school meals do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this money is to close that attainment gap.

Due to the huge amount of money made available by the government, £2.545 billion spent in 2015-2016, schools are being held accountable for the spending of the Pupil Premium money. All schools are required to publish, on their websites, what the funding they have received, how the money is being spent and what impact that money has had.

Brentnall Community Primary School is committed to providing effective resources and ensuring vital support is in place for all our disadvantaged pupils to improve their academic outcomes and ultimately their life chances.

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6
  • £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.
