Pupil Premium Grant


What is the Pupil Premium Grant?

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered

for free school meals at any point in the last six years. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked

after recently and children of Service personnel.


What is the Early Years pupil premium?

The Early Years pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding provided to settings to help improve the education they

provide for 3 and 4 year olds, this was introduced in September 2015.


What are the aims of Pupil Premium and Early Years pupil premium?

Nationally there is a gap in attainment between those children who are eligible for Free School Meals and their peers.

The main purpose of the Pupil Premium is to close this gap by raising the achievements and aspirations of disadvantaged

groups of children.


Who is eligible for the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for pupils who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals or have been

at any point in the past 6 years. It is also allocated for children who been looked after by the Local Authority recently

and families of children whose parents are in the Armed Forces. The grant was £1.300 per pupil in 2014/2015, and rose to £1320 per pupil for 2015/2016, staying the same for 2016/17.


How is the Pupil Premium used at Heath Primary School?

The Government has given schools discretion in how to best use the funding to meet the needs of their children.

it has had for the year 2015-2016.

How can parents/carers contribute to the success of the Pupil Premium scheme?

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, it is worth registering them even if you are not going to have the school

lunch. It will have a direct impact on the funding and will maximise the support we can provide.
Parental support and involvement is a key factor in raising standards. Please contact Mrs Walton in the office if you

would like help and advice on how to best support your child.
