Pupil Premium

Netherseal St Peter's CE Primary School - Pupil Premium Funding



What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 to provide schools with funding to support children in low income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and families with parents in the armed forces. At Grange Community Junior School, we ensure that this is carefully targeted so that there is an impact on improving children’s learning and well-being. We recognise that not every pupil who is socially disadvantaged is making less than expected progress in school. As such pupil premium funding will be allocated following the analysis of which pupils will benefit the most from its support.

Who is eligible for free school meals (FSM)?

A pupil is only eligible to receive a free school meal when a claim for the meal has been made on their behalf, and their eligibility has been verified by the school where they are enrolled or by the local authority. To learn more information about how to receive free school meals, view this webpage from our food provider HC3S.

How does Service Pupil Premium differ from Pupil Premium?

Service Pupil Premium funding is additional funding received by schools to help provide additional support for pupils who have one of their parents serving in the regular armed forces.

The purpose of this funding is primarily to provide pastoral support for service children, whereas the Pupil Premium was introduced to raise attainment and accelerate progress within disadvantaged groups.

Is your child eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant?

Please note that the criteria for Pupil Premium (which used to be called “free school meals funding”) is the same, regardless of method of checking eligibility, but for the online service all you need to do is enter your name, national insurance number or asylum number, your address and your child’s details.  Press ‘submit’ and you will find out if you are eligible.

If your result comes back ‘found’, this means your child is eligible for Pupil Premium and the system automatically tells the school. In this way we get some extra funding for your child which we can use to help improve outcomes for those who need a little extra support.

So PLEASE – check today if you are eligible to help us help your children. Just click on the link: https://www.cloudforedu.org.uk/ofsm/hants.

Recovery Premium Funding

The recovery premium grant is part of the government’s package of funding to support pupils whose education has been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19).

It is a time-limited grant providing additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year and further funds across the 2022 to 2023 and 2023 to 2024 academic years.

It is focused on pupil premium eligible pupils. However, schools can use it to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting any pupil based on an assessment of individual need.

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs

Children in classrooms may be distracted. They have other considerations running through their minds, such as their, personal lives, friendships, hobbies, physical distractions like hunger or tiredness, and so much more. When children are side-tracked by these, they focus solely on those distractions. Those preoccupations will take priority over education. At Grange we recognise that assisting pupils in eliminating their distractions, allows their focus to become education and accomplishment. At Grange we aim to support pupils’ needs in a number of ways, some of these include:
