Pupil Premium

 

Hart Plain Junior School Pupil Premium Reporting to Parents

 
The pupil’s premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or background. It is allocated to schools based on the number of children who come from low income families – this is defined as those who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals. It is important to know that a pupil does not need to have a school dinner, but the parents/carers must have applied and be entitled if they wanted one.
It also includes
Pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point over the last six years
Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
First introduced in April 2011, the level of the premium in 2011 -12 was £488 per pupil; it was increased to £600 per pupil in 2012-13 and was further increased to £900 in 2013/14. The money is for schools to decide how to use but should be spent in order to improve educational attainment of children from less privileged backgrounds.
