Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Introduced in 2011, Pupil Premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of children from families who receive certain benefits. Pupil Premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their peers.


Who is eligible for Pupil Premium?

1. Children who are or have been looked after under local authority care for more than one day.

2. Children from service families who receive a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.

3. Children whose parents receive certain benefits and are therefore entitled to free school meals.

As all children between ages 4-7 currently have free school meals (Universal Free School Meals) many parents do not realize that their child may be eligible for Pupil Premium and school may be missing out on additional funding.


Is my child eligible for Pupil Premium?

If you or your partner receive any of the following benefits you can apply for Pupil Premium.


Qualifying benefits

· Universal Credit – your household earned annual income must be less than £7,400 after tax and not including any benefits

· Income Support

· Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

· Income-related Employment Support Allowance

· Support under part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

· The guaranteed part of State Pension Credit

· Child Tax Credit – with no Working Tax Credit and your annual household income is no more than £16,190, as assessed by the Inland Revenue

Before you apply

· If you’re a foster parent, you cannot apply for free school meals as you already receive funding. · If you already receive Pupil Premium for a child and just want to add another child, contact the benefits service who will be able to check if the additional child is eligible. · If you get Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support, contact the benefits service who will be able to check if your child is eligible.


How is Pupil Premium funding used by schools?

Schools can choose how to spend their Pupil Premium money, as they are best placed to identify what would be of most benefit to the children who are eligible. Often, all of the children in a class will reap some benefit from how the school spends its Pupil Premium.
