Pupil Premium Allocation

Pupil Premium Report 2016 - 2017

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and diminish the differences between these pupils and their peers.
 "It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility."

At Hindley Junior and Infant School, we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion, thirst for knowledge and commitment to learning that makes the difference between success and failure.

We are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. 

Information to be published to parents:

In place of the current requirements regarding information about pupil premium expenditure, schools are now required to publish their 'PUPIL PREMIUM STRATEGY.' This should include:

  1. In the previous academic year: (2015-2016)
  • how the pupil premium allocation was spent
  • the impact of the expenditure on eligible and other pupils

       2. The current academic year: (2016-2017)

  • the amount of the school's allocation of pupil premium grant
  • details of the main barriers to educational achievement
  • how the allocation will be spent to address the barriers and why these approaches were taken
  • how the school will measure the impact of the pupil premium
  • The date of the next pupil premium strategy review.

How will the school measure the impact of the Pupil Premium?

To monitor progress and attainment, our performance tables capture the achievement of pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

At Hindley Junior and Infant School, the usual cycle of data will be used to measure pupil progress and enable the early identification of further need, support and/or appropriate intervention. Review meetings take place (approximately every 9 weeks) and include Senior Managers, Class Teachers and Learning Support Assistants (LSAs).

At each milestone, the school will review the impact of actions taken and plan for how the funding will be specifically allocated over the next phase. When selecting pupils for Pupil Premium target groups, the school will look at all pupils across the school. NB: There are some pupils who are not eligible for Pupil Premium but are included as they may benefit from accessing additional support.

Financial year 2016 to 2017:

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, school received the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • ?1,320 for pupils in Early Years to Year 6

Schools will also receive ?1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the ?1,900 rate.
Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract ?1,900 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils doesn't go to their school; it goes to the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child. VSHs are responsible for managing pupil premium funding for looked-after children.

Eligibility Criteria

Parents/guardians in England do not have to pay for school meals if they receive any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-Based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed ?16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit

Pupil Premium is an important payment for schools and a really good opportunity for eligible parents to get even more support for their children in schools.        

If you have any questions or would like to know more about Pupil Premium funding and how it is being used to benefit your child, please speak to the headteacher.

If you think your child may possibly be eligible for free school meals, even if you don't want your child to eat school meals, please call into the office to collect a claim form.  Every child who is eligible generates valuable income for the school.
