Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Spend- Information for Parents

 
The pupil premium – link to DfE Website - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/pupil-premium-information-for-schools-and-alternative-provision-settings is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
 
Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
 
  • registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • been in care for 6 months or longer
 
In the 2015 to 2016 financial year, schools received:
  • £1,320 for each eligible primary-aged pupil
  • £935 for each eligible secondary-aged pupil
 
If you feel you may be eligible for Free School Meals, but have not claimed them, please contact the School Office, as Pupil Premium makes a real difference to the opportunities we can give to pupils at Archbishop of York’s CE Junior School.
 
Funding for 2016 to 2017
In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, pupil premium funding will be:
  • £1,320 for each eligible primary-aged pupil
  • £935 for each eligible secondary-aged pupil

 

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:
  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

 

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.

 

Accountability
Headteachers and school governing bodies are accountable for the impact of pupil premium funding in the following ways:
 
  • performance tables, which show the learning and progress of disadvantaged pupils as shown by outcomes data
  • requiring schools to publish details online each year the level of pupil premium funding received by the school
  • how leaders and governors have spent the pupil premium, the rationale for this spending and the impact it is having on pupil achievement
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, where inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium
