Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is funding made available by the Department for Education to support outcomes for disadvantaged children. The funding is based on the number of children recorded as being eligible for Pupil Premium at the time of the January school census. 

Who is eligible for Pupil Premium? 

Children in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 at St Anne's Infants' may be eligible for one of three levels of Pupil Premium funding.

 

The highest amount, known as Pupil Premium Plus is for:

 

  • Looked-after children defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by an English local authority
  • Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order. 

 

If you believe your child meets either of the above criteria, please inform Mrs Sutherland as soon as possible. 

 

The second highest amount is for children who would be eligible for Free School Meals or who have been recorded as eligible for them at any point since May 2014. Under the current criteria, this would be children who receive or whose parents receive one or more of the following support payments are eligible to receive Pupil Premium:

 

  • Universal credit: provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400 as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods
  • Income Support
  • Income Based Jobseekers’ Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of state pension credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided that you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income, as assessed by HMRC, of £16,190 or less
  • If you are entitled to Working Tax Credit run-on (the payment received for a further four weeks after stopping qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

 

If you believe your child meets the above criteria, please contact the school office.

 

The smallest amount of funding is known as Service Pupil Premium and is for children who:

  • have one or more parent serving in the regular armed forces
  • have been registered as a ‘service child’ on the January school census at any point since 2014
  • have a parent who died whilst serving in the armed forces and now receive a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the War Pensions Scheme
  • have a parent who is on full commitment as part of the full time reserve service

 

If you believe your child meets the above criteria, please inform the school office by 16 January 2020. 

 

 

Early Years Pupil Premium 

This is additional funding made available by the Department for Education to support outcomes for disadvantaged three and four year olds (i.e. those in Nursery at St Anne's) receiving their Early Education Entitlement. A child may be eligible for the funding if they meet either of the first two criteria above i.e. being a looked after child / a child who has ceased to be looked after as the result of a court order or would be eligible for Free school Meals.
