What is Pupil Premium?

We gain additional funding for our ‘free school meal children’ this brief report tells you how we spend this money to improve these childrens’ chances in life. This money is known as Pupil Premium.

Pupil Premium is allocated on the current number of children on free school meals and ‘Ever 6’ (children identified as being on FSM in the last 6 years).

From September 2015 this funding is known as ‘Disadvantage Funding’

We are planning to spend any funds we receive for this to support our less advantaged pupils and families.

This covers subsidising chargeable costs such as clubs, trips and uniform costs as well as providing academic studies to improve the performance of this group of pupils, so any underachievement gaps are narrowed between national averages and our disadvantaged pupils.

Please see the plan for 2016/17.

Why it is important to claim your Free School Meals

The additional funding for children on free school meals is increasing.  It will help to support the learning and achievement of your child.  Please apply for free school meals if you are eligible.

Parent/guardian must get one of the following:

  • Child Tax Credit, (but not Working Tax Credit) and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190.
  • Income Support.
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance.
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance.
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit.
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 (for this, you will need to apply directly to the school, NOT to Bradford Council).

Where a parent is entitled to Working Tax Credit in the 4 week period immediately after their employment stops, or after they start to work less than 16 hours per week, their children are entitled to free school meals for this period.
