Pupil Premium & Year 7 catch-up funding
The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11.
- Every child currently registered as eligible for free school meals
- Children who have been looked after for 6 months or longer
From April 2012, pupil premium funding was also extended to:
- All children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
- £935 per pupil of secondary-school age
- £1,900 per pupil for looked-after children who:
- Have been looked after for 1 day or more
- Are adopted
- Leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or a Residence Order
School accountability for the pupil premium
The pupil premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.
Ofsted inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.
Year 7 Catch up
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding of £500 to support each year 7 pupil who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).
