Pupil Premium 

What is the Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is a grant given to schools by the Government to support the most vulnerable pupils to achieve, reach their full potential and be successful. The amount of funding received is determined by the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals. The funding is to support all FSM pupils, LAC and Armed forces children.

Below indicates how the Pupil Premium funding will be spent for this financial year and the impact of previous funding.

Gwladys Street tracks Pupil Premium children's progress carefully and draws up provision maps to ensure all Pupil Premium children receive support. Mrs Berry & Mr Moore share responsibility for being the Pupil Premium Champion for the school.



What could your child's school receive? 

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

Providers of free early years education can claim an Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) of up to £300 per year to spend on enriching your three or four-year-old child’s education.


Funding for financial year 2018 to 2019

In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, schools will receive 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
  • £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

Schools will receive £2,300 for any pupil:

  • identified in the January 2018 school census or the alternative provision census as having left local authority care as a result of:
    • adoption
    • 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)


This money will be used to support your child's education.  You can see how we are planning to spend the money on our Pupil Premium Strategy Report.

The majority of the funding goes on the provision of extra teachers to support intervention groups, the provision of targeted support with EAL and Speech and Language.  We also look for ways to support self esteem and provide ‘Golden Opportunities for the pupils to have new and exciting experience both within school and beyond.
