Funding and Grants
The Pupil Premium is allocated to Local Authorities who pass it to schools with pupils from Reception to Year 11 who are eligible for Free School Meals, are looked after or have parents currently in the Armed Forces.Pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at some point over the past 6 years receive the Pupil Premium.
"Ofsted recognises the concern raised by headteachers that there are vulnerable pupils in need of support who are not eligible for Pupil Premium funding - if an intervention is required for 100 pupils and, of these, only 60 are eligible for Pupil Premium funding, then 60% could be funded with Pupil Premium money (for accounting purposes), with the remaining 40% being funded by other sources. This allows schools to meet the needs of all children in their schools, and use the Pupil Premium funding to create economies of scale - Ofsted highlighted this approach in their second report on the Pupil Premium (Feb 2013)" The Pupil Premium - from the updated guide by Marc Rowland (Deputy Director of the National Education Trust.
The Pupil Premium Allocation for the Academic Year 2020-21 was £TBC
