Pupil Premium 2019-2020
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after by the local authority for at least one night. From April 2012 this also included pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). The level of the premium was £488 per eligible pupil for 2011/12 and £623 for 2012/13. The Government has set the premium for service children at £250 per eligible pupil. In 2013/14 the level of funding was increased to £900 and £300 for service children. From April 2014 funding increased further to £1,300 for primary children and then to £1,320 from 1st April 2015.
In 2019/20 the funding provided for children in receipt of FSM/Ever 6 remained at £1,320 and £2,300 for children who are currently or have ever been in care.
In 2019-20 Tatsfield Primary School received £25,080 in Pupil Premium.
4% of pupils in the school receive FSM
11% of pupils in the school are in receipt of Pupil Premium
To support Pupil Premium children in 2019-2020, we will continue to provide some one to one tutoring and fully qualified teachers for teaching and learning support groups. This has a real impact on closing the gap for these children and we will continue to develop this further over the next year. Some money will continue to be targeted at social skills group sessions and to provide the suppport of a Learning Mentor. Some social and cultural activities will also continue to be supported so children are not disadvantaged.
