Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium at Cholsey Primary School

At Cholsey School our mission is "to prepare children for the future through academic excellence and individual care."

Background to Pupil Premium:

The pupil premium is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential. The Government has used pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM), looked after children and service children as indicators of deprivation, and have provided a fixed amount of money for schools per pupil based on the number of pupils registered for FSM over a rolling six year period. This fixed amount of money is expected to increase every year for the course of this current Parliament.

There is also pupil premium plus which is a fixed amount of money allocated for any adopted pupils; to access this money we have to highlight these children as adopted on the census.

 

Eligibility:

Under the current criteria, children who receive, or whose parents receive, one or more of the following support payments are entitled to receive free school meals (FSM) and eligible for 2 year old funding.

•Income-based & Contribution-based JSA or ESA on an equal basis

•Income Support (IS)

•Income Based Jobseekers Allowance (IBJSA)

•Income-related employment and support allowance (IRESA).

•Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income, as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, that does not exceed £16,190

•Guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit

•Where a parent is entitled to Working Tax Credit run-on (the payment someone receives for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit).

•Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

 

Objectives of Pupil Premium spending:

Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium income is to close the gap between pupil groups.
