Holy Family Catholic Primary and Nursery School Pupil Premium Funding

What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding which is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM'). The Pupil Premium is aimed at addressing the current underlying inequalities which exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent peers. The Pupil Premium also provides funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and the children of service personnel.
The Pupil Premium was initially introduced in April 2011 when schools received an additional £488 for each of their pupils eligible for free school meals. Since then the Pupil Premium has increased so that it is now worth £1323 per eligible pupil.

Is your child eligible for Pupil Premium Funding?
If a family receives any of the following, you can apply for Free School Meals. (You still need to do this even though children are currently entitled to Free School Meals throughout Reception and Key Stage 1 - they only get the Pupil Premium Funding if your Free School Meals application is successful.)
  • Income Support
  • 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)
  • Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

Your child may also be entitled to Pupil Premium Funding if they:
  • are currently looked after in the care of an English local authority
  • have been adopted from a local authority in England or Wales
  • have a parent in the armed force.

How can Children benefit from Pupil Premium funding?
The school is responsible for deciding how to best support the children eligible for Pupil Premium Funding. The support offered varies for each child but in the past has included:
  • one-to-one/small group support with Teachers and Teaching assistants
  • Access to breakfast and after school clubs
  • Support with funding the cost for school trips - including residential visits
  • providing school uniform when costs are tricky
  • trips and activities for Pupil Premium children
  • music lessons

If you think you may be eligible for Pupil Premium funding, please contact the school or Mrs Morland, our Parent Support Adviser or for more advice or log on to Swindon.gov.uk
