FUNDING FOR FINANCIAL YEAR 2019 TO 2020
In the 2019 to 2020 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,320 for pupils in reception to year 6
- £ 935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11
Schools will receive £2,300 for any pupil:
- identified in the January 2019 school census or the alternative provision census as having left local authority care as a result of:
- a special guardianship order
- a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)
- who has been in local authority care for 1 day or more
- recorded as both eligible for FSM in the last 6 years and as being looked after (or as having left local authority care)
The funding for pupils who are looked after by a local authority, and attract the £2,300 rate, is managed by the virtual school head of the local authority that looks after the pupil.
Here are the pupil premium allocations for the 2018 to 2019 financial year. These were based on data from the January 2018 school census.
Allocations for the 2019 to 2020 financial year, based on the 2019 census, will be confirmed at the end of June 2019.
It is extremely important that all parents/carers of children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) do register (even if you then choose to not take the meals) as this grant enables us to provide extra resources for children. To register for FSM go to our Free School Meals web page.
