Pupil Premuim Funding
Pupil Premium is additional funding that is given to all publically funded schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. Nationally the attainment of children who are or have been eligible for free school meals is consistently below those children who have never been eligible.
Pupil Premium money allows schools to target inventions to close the gap in attainment between these two groups.
Pupil premium is paid to schools according to how many pupils have;
- Registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
- Been in Local authority care for 6 months or longer
In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, pupil premium funding was:
- £1,300 for each eligible primary-aged pupil
- Funding to support looked-after children increased to £1,900 for each eligible pupil.
In the 2015 to 2016 financial year, pupil premium funding has increased to:
- £1,320 for each eligible primary-aged pupil
- In 2013/2014 Rookery received £245,593 pupil premium funding.
- In 2014/2015 Rookery received £282,100 pupil premium funding.
- In 2015/2016 Rookery received £277,200 pupil premium funding.
- In 2016/2017 Rookery received £273,265 pupil premium funding.
We aim to develop a range of interventions for children eligible for pupil premium to ensure they make accelerated progress where necessary. Rookery’s objective is to ensure that we have no gap in progress or attainment between these two groups of pupils.
