Pupil Premium

Statutory Information

The Facts

Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are either looked after by the local authority, have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) or for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. The level of premium for 2016-17 is £1320 per primary (Reception to Year 6) pupil. Pupils in years 7 to 11 will receive £935 for 2016-17.

From April 2014 children who are looked after will attract a higher rate of funding than children from low-income families - the ‘Pupil Premium Plus’, which will be £1,900 per pupil for 2016-17. This is to reflect the unique challenges they face at school where they often struggle to keep up with their peers at both primary and secondary level.

Children who have parents in the armed forces are supported through the service child premium which for 2015-16 will be set at £300 per pupil.

Purpose

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM), service children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

- The proportion of primary aged children eligible for pupil premium is currently 11/58 = 19%.
- The proportion of secondary aged children eligible for pupil premium is currently 13/34 = 26%.
- The proportion of children in our school eligible for pupil premium plus is currently 2/92 = 2%.
- The total proportion of children in our school eligible for pupil premium is currently 26/92 = 28%.

The percentage has been calculated in respect of the number of Key stage 1-4 pupils on our school roll, which is currently 92 pupils.

Amwell View School and Specialist Sports College has the Pupil Premium allocated straight to the school and it is clearly identifiable in our budget. We decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as we are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within our school.

All schools can decide how best to spend this money but must report on and publicise annually how the money has been spent and what the impact has been on the achievement of the pupils. Pupil premium is used to support initiatives to raise achievement, improve attendance and provide out of school hours provision through a range of additional provision:
