The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that targets extra money at pupils who come from backgrounds that might be deemed to be disadvantaged. The premium is provided in order to support these pupils so they may reach their potential.
Eligibility for the Pupil Premium from April 2012 is for any pupil who has been entitled to Free School Meal (FSM) in the last six years. In addition, pupils who are “looked after” by the authority (LAC) or whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces are also entitled to the premium.
From April 2014, schools in England can receive the Pupil Premium for children adopted from care, or who left care under a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005. Schools can also claim the Pupil Premium for children who left care under a Residence Order on or after 14 October 1991.
It is 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 setting.
Principles for use of Pupil Premium at All Saints
We ensure that the teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils
We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups; this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for pupil premium will be socially disadvantaged.
We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.
Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis.
