‘Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.’
Pupil Premium funding is available to:
In the financial year 2015-2016 Loddon Primary school received £1,320 for each pupil in F2 – Y6 who had been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
In the financial year 2016-2017 the school received £1,320 for pupils in F2-Y6 who had been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
In the financial year 2017-2018 the school will receive £1,320 for each pupil in F2-Y6 who has been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
Schools are entitled to £1,900 for any pupil who has left local authority care because of one of the following:
Children who have been in local authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1,900 of Pupil Premium funding. Funding for these pupils goes to the Virtual School Head in the Local Authority that looks after the child. We do not currently have any pupils that are in receipt of this funding.
Ever 6 FSM
Pupil Premium for 2017-2018 will include pupils recorded in the January 2017 school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) since May 2011 as well as those first known to be eligible in January 2017.
It is important that parents of children in Reception - Year 2 still
apply if eligible for FSM as this is the only way the school will
receive the funding and FSM for pupils beyond Year 2.
Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)
EYPP is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 years old.
Children must receive free early education in order to attract EYPP funding.
Once a child previously eligible for EYPP starts school they will not become automatically eligible for the school-age pupil premium.
Parents need to re-apply if still eligible.
Families will attract EYPP / PP / LAC / adopted funding if they meet at least
one of the following criteria:
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
‘Pupil Premium funding is provided to raise the attainment of
disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their full potential.’

provide provision to enable achievement.
