The Pupil Premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. It was introduced in 2011 to provide additional school funding for those children from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 11 classed as having deprived backgrounds, and also those who've been looked after by a local authority for more than six months. The Service Premium was also introduced for children whose parent(s) are, or have since 2011, served in the armed forces.
Is my child eligible for Pupil Premium?
In order for the school to receive the Pupil Premium funding a Parent/Carer must be claiming one of the following benefits:
• Income Support
• Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance
• Income-Based Job Seekers Allowance
• Child Tax Credit (but no Working Tax Credit is being received by the claimant or his/her partner and the combined annual income as assessed by HMIR on a TC602 form is not above £16,190)
• The Guaranteed Element of Pension Tax Credit.
Applying is easy and can be done in your own home – the parent receiving benefits needs to insert their name, date of birth and National Insurance Number by using the link below or complete the form below and bring it into the school office.
