2018-2019 Pupil Premium Funding
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, schools have received the following funding for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,320 for pupils in reception to year 6
Schools will receive £2,300 for any pupil identified in the spring term school census or the alternative provision census as having left local-authority care as a result of one of the following:
- a special guardianship order
- a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)
- who has been in local-authority care for 1 day or more
- recorded as both eligible for FSM in the last 6 years and as being looked after (or as having left local-authority care)
For the pupils who attract the £2,300 rate, the virtual school head of the local authority that looks after the pupil will manage the funding.
