Pupil Premium Funding
The Pupil Premium is an additional amount of money given to schools, on top of their main budget. Every school receives a fixed amount of money per pupil for all pupils meeting certain criteria. It is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals (FSM), those looked after by the local authority for at least 6 months, those who have been eligible for free school meals, at any given point, within the last 6 years and children of armed service personnel.
The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment. Many eligible children will not need additional support. The school adopts the same approach with eligible children as with any other child found to be at risk of falling behind.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils, and from September 2012 schools were required to publish online information about how they have used the funding.
At Bosbury School we work closely with parents and carers to understand each child fully and put in place additional provision when needed which is appropriate and effective.
The pupil premium allocation continues for 18-19 at £1900.00 per looked after child, £1320.00 for a child with free school entitlement in the last 6 years and £300.00 for a child with a parent in the armed forces.
