Pupil Premium Update 2012-2013

Pupil Premium

·         Funding through the Premium will amount to £1.25bn in 2012-13.

·         From April 2012 the Pupil Premium will be £600 per deprived pupil in years from Reception to Year 11 in maintained schools and academies in England

·         The indicator used for deprivation will be those pupils on the January 2012 School Census who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in the last 6 years, known as “Ever 6 FSM”.   This will extend the Premium to another half million pupils.

·         Children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the past generally have poorer academic results than those who have never been eligible for FSM. These pupils therefore should benefit from the additional support the Pupil Premium funding will be able to provide.

·         In addition, deprived pupils in non-mainstream settings who are publicly funded –Special Schools, Non-Maintained Special Schools, Independent Schools, Not in School, General Hospital Schools, Pupil Referral Units and 14-15 year olds in Further Education (FE) Colleges - will also attract a Premium of £600 on an Ever 6 FSM basis.

·         Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months will also attract a Premium of £600.

·         A Service Child Premium of £250 for children whose parents are in the armed forces.

·         Up to £50m of the total will be available to fund a Summer School Programme for disadvantaged pupils to support their transition to secondary schools in September 2012.
