    Pupil Premium

    What is the Pupil Premium? 

    The Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools that was introduced by the Government in April 2011. Its purpose is to support schools in closing the attainment gap between pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers.

    In the 2017 to 2018 financial year, the school will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years

    • £935 for pupils in Year 7 to Year 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM 

    Schools will also receive £1,900 for each student identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of one of the following

    • adoption
    • a special guardianship order
    • a child arrangements order
    • a residence order

    If a student 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.

     

    Students who have been in local-authority care for one day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils is managed by the Virtual School Head (VSH) in Ealing.

    How Much Does the School Receive?

    During the financial year 2016/17 the school was allocated £483,629, and for 2017/18 the school will be allocated £446,463.
