What is the Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to diminish the difference between disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and their peers.
Financial Year 2016 to 2017
In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools will receive £1 320 for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
Schools will also receive £1 900 for each people identified in the spring schools census as having left local authority care because of it either adoption, a special guardianship border, a child arrangements order or a residence order.
The service premium is extra funding for schools to support children and young people with parents in the Armed Forces. Pupils attract the premium if they meet one of the following criteria: one of their parents is serving in the regular Armed Forces; they have been registered as a ‘service child’ in the school census at any point since 2011 or one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil receives a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the War Pension Scheme. In the financial year 2016 to 2017, schools will receive £300 for each eligible pupil.
In the financial year 2015 to 2016 Brinkley Grove received £119,887.
In the financial year 2016 to 2017 we anticipate receiving £106,060. This includes £1200 for the Services Premium and £1900 for children under local authority care.
What does the school spend the Pupil Premium on?
School school uses the premium to support the following strategies:
- One-to-one and small group tuition
- Supporting the cost of school trips
- Access to a range of additional support including family support and speech and language support
- Resourcing curriculum needs
