Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those pupils who do not have FSM by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

In 2016-17 each Primary school will be allocated £1,320 for every child whose parents have registered for FSM. The calculation is also retrospective and takes account of pupils registered for FSM at each school over the past 6 years i.e. pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years.

Pupils who are looked after and accommodated by the local authority (LAC) or children who have ceased to be looked after due to adoption, Special Guardianship Order or Residence Order. The rate for children who are eligible for Pupil Premium under this criteria is £1,900. In the case of Looked After Children the funding goes to the Local Authority and is allocated to schools from there.

The children of members of the armed forces are also entitled to this funding. This includes children whose Parent has been in the armed forces in the last six years. The service children premium for 2016-17 is £300 per child.

It is then for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, the government has also required schools to publish online information about how they have used the Premium.

Total Pupil Premium money for Gordon Primary school:

Financial year 2014 - 15 £98,325
Financial year 2015 - 16 £105,961
Financial year 2016 - 17 £105,460

How we used the money in 2015 - 16:

  • Additional Teaching Assistant support in classrooms
  • Intervention groups run by Teaching Assistants
  • Additional Speech, Language & Communication support
  • Additional Learning Mentor support time
  • Subsidised trips
  • Grants to subsidise residential school journeys
  • Subsidised music lessons
  • Funding for access to after school clubs
  • Funding for access to ActivKids clubs
  • Additional swimming lessons

The above support was targeted to meet the needs of individual children. Not all children eligible for Pupil Premium Funding would have received all of the above interventions.
