Background - what is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who were previously known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

The Pupil Premium funding is provided by the Government to address the underlying inequalities between children receiving free school provision in comparison with those who are not in receipt of free school meals.

It aims to provide significant funding for disadvantaged children to help close the attainment gap as it is a major concern that children who come from low income families are at a greater risk of under performing compared with children from families with a higher income.

Service Premium is funding provided by the Government to support service children. In the main, service children achieve very well at school. However, schools have recognized additional needs relating to service children’s emotional and social well-being. Schools will be able to use the Service Premium to fund this and additional learning support, if they feel that is appropriate.

What should it be used for?

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families. From September 2012, schools were required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive. In 2014/15 Wimborne Infants was allocated Service and Pupil Premium funding of £43,560. Other funding was added to this to ensure that we could support all our most disadvantaged pupils.
