Achievement for All
What is the Pupil Premium
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 continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
The Premium will be allocated to schools alongside their main schools budget each year
The Government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the Pupil Premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:
the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers
In most cases the Pupil Premium is paid direct to schools, allocated to them for every pupil who receives free school meals. Schools decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.
For pupils from low-income families in non-mainstream settings the local authority decides how to allocate the Pupil Premium. The authority must consult non-mainstream settings about how the Premium for these pupils should be used.
Local authorities are responsible for looked after children and make payments to schools and academies where an eligible looked after child is on roll.

Register your child for Free School Meals: your child gets free meals and the College gets extra funding.
Register now: don’t miss out
The College will receive funding for every child registered either currently or during the last six years. With this money we could offer additional tuition to support your child’s study or help fund after College activities and trips they may wish to attend. Students who enter Post 16 at the College who have previously been registered for Free School Meals are entitled to a bursary.
How does it work?
2. Registering is really quick and easy – if you think you qualify, simply follow
the instructions on the back of the form we supply Contact the appropriate Key
Stage Office for the form
3. If you want your child to have a free, healthy meal at lunchtime that’s great – they will get the free meal (saving you more that £350 a year), extra benefits and the school gets £935 extra.
4. It is far more discrete for students to pick up their daily meal with the College cashless system (sQuid) – they simply swipe their card each time.
5. If you don’t want your child to have the school meals they can continue as normal – as long as you qualify and are registered, the College still gets £935 extra.
