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. Mr Moore is the Pupil Premium Champion for the school.

 

 

What could your child's school receive? 

EARLY YEARS PUPIL PREMIUM: PRE-SCHOOL SUPPORT FUNDING

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years pre-school settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4 year-olds including, but not restricted to, those adopted from care.

The funding goes directly to registered early years providers (including pre-schools, nurseries and childminders) that offer children the free early education entitlement.

 

WHAT IT PAYS FOR?

Funding equates to £302 per child per year (pro-rata for children who access less than the full free early years entitlement) and early years providers can choose how they use the money to improve the quality of provision they offer. For instance, they could:

  • Pool the Early Years Pupil Premium to purchase shared services such as an Early Years Graduate or Speech and Language Therapist
  • Provide additional training for staff
  • Enhance speech and language development initiatives

 

Funding for financial year 2019 to 2020

In the 2019 to 2020 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 2019 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)

Service Children - £300

  • Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence

 

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.
