What is the pupil premium?
The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. It is targeted at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as pupils from less deprived families.
Funding for 2016 to 2017
In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, primary schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,320 for primary-aged pupils
- Schools will also receive £1,900 for each looked-after pupil: Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority
- The same funding (£1,900) is provided for children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
At Maulden Lower School we pride ourselves on utilising the Pupil Premium to support our students with a specific focus on Literacy, Numeracy, Transition, Curriculum enrichment and Engagement, maximising the life opportunities for all students.
