Eligibility

Ever 6 Free School Meals (FSM)

The pupil premium for 2018 to 2019 will include pupils recorded in the January 2018 school census who are known to have been eligible for FSM since May 2012, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2018.

Children adopted from care or who have left care

The pupil premium for 2018 to 2019 will include pupils recorded in the January 2018 school census and alternative provision census, who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order). These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.

Ever 6 service child

For the purposes of these grant conditions, Ever 6 service child means a pupil recorded in the January 2018 school census who was eligible for the service child premium since the January 2013 census as well as those recorded as a service child for the first time on the January 2018 school census. The grant will be allocated as set out in sections 4, 5 and 6 below. Where national curriculum year groups do not apply to a pupil, the pupil will attract PPG if aged 4 to 15 as recorded in the January 2018 school census.

 

Allocations to schools - Mainstream schools

For the purposes of these conditions of grant, mainstream school means infant, junior, primary, middle, secondary, high schools, special school and pupil referral units. It does not include general hospital schools or other alternative provision.

DfE will allocate PPG to schools and local authorities (who must allocate for each FTE pupil on the January 2018 school census, at each school they maintain) the following amounts:

  • £1,320 per pupil for each Ever 6 FSM FTE pupil aged 4 and over in year groups reception to year 6, except where the pupil is allocated the LAC or post-LAC premium
  • £935 per pupil for each Ever 6 FSM FTE in year groups 7 to 11, except where the pupil is allocated the LAC or post-LAC Premium
  • £2,300 per pupil for each post-LAC in year groups reception to year 11
  • £300 for each pupil aged 4 and over in year groups reception to year 11 who is either Ever 6 service child FTE or in receipt of pensions under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)

For pupils recorded aged 5 and over on the school census, PPG will be allocated on the basis of sole and dual main registrations only.

 

 At Branton Primary School

 

At Branton Primary School we have one pupil eligible for the pupil premium grant in the academic year 2018-19 at the rate of £1,320 which will be used towards maintaining the level of staffing in the school, towards staff training to ensure all children, including those eligible for the PPG are challenged to meet their potential, and towards the purchase of equipment to support learning.
 
 
Further information is available from school, however due to our small cohort numbers and possibility of identifying individual children, we do not give specific amounts or information on our website.
