Pupil Premium

Financial year 2016 to 2017

 

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

•£1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6

•£935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

 

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.

 

Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils doesn’t go to their school; it goes to the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child. VSHs are responsible for managing pupil premium funding for looked-after children.

 

The date of the next review of the pupil premium strategy is September 15th 2017.
