Please note, this term we have commissioned an external review of Pupil Premium. This is being undertaken in December, following which, the finalised Pupil Premium Strategy for 2017-2018 will be published.
The following document is given to all schools and clearly sets out which groups of pupils are eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG).
Funding is received by the school from the Local Authorities in two parts, usually January and June.
2016-17 Pupil Premium Grant Projected Allocation for Barlows Primary School is £84,480.
1. Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) 2016-2017 will be paid pursuant to Section 14 of the Education Act 2002 and, in accordance with Section 16 of that Act, the Secretary of State lays down the following terms and conditions on which assistance is given in relation to the PPG payable to the local authority for the financial year beginning 1 April 2016.
2. PPG provides funding for two policies:
• Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers; and
• Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces
The PPG per pupil for 2016-2017 is as follows:
|Disadvantaged pupils||Pupil Premium per pupil|
|Pupils in Year Groups R to 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM||£1,320|
|Pupils in Year Groups 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM||
|Looked After Children (LAC)||
|Children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 20021 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order||
|Pupils in Year Groups R to 11 recorded as Ever 6 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.||
Ever 6 FSM
The Pupil Premium for 2016-2017 will include pupils on the January 2016 School Census known to have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) since May 2010, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2016.
For the purposes of these grants conditions,
“Ever 6 FSM” means those pupils recorded on the January 2016 School Census2 who were recorded as known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) on any of the termly censuses since Summer 2010, including the January 2016 School Census. Each pupil will only be counted once: for example, if a pupil on the January 2016 Census is recorded as known to be eligible for FSM and was recorded as known to be eligible for FSM on the Summer 2015 and Autumn 2015 Censuses, they will be counted as one Ever 6 FSM pupil for calculating allocations for the PPG in 2016-2017.
Children Adopted from Care
The pupil premium for 2016 to 2017 includes pupils recorded in the January 2016 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 on the January 2016 census who was eligible for the Service Child premium since the January 2011 census as well as those recorded as a Service Child for the first time on the January 2016 Census.
Schools are free to spend PPG as they see fit. However, we will be accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils in the categories listed.
From September 2012 we were required to publish on line information about how we have used the PPG. This was introduced to ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the PPG and the extra support they receive.
Early Years Pupil Premium
From April 2015, nurseries, schools, childminders and other childcare providers have been able to claim extra funding (Early Years Pupil Premium) to support children’s development, learning and care.
In the Summer Term of 2016, Barlows received £377.49 Early Years Pupil Premium. This funding was allocated for Early Years resources and staff deployment for Stay and Play sessions.
In the Autumn Term of 2016, Barlows received £201.32 Early Years Pupil Premium. This funding was allocated for Early Years resources and staff deployment for Stay and Play sessions.
