Pupil premium: funding and accountability for schools

The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Our schools will receive funds 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

 

  • There is also funding allocated to children of servicemen and women.

Your child may be eligible for free school meals – and accordingly pupil premium – if you receive any of the following benefits:

  • Income support
  • Income-based jobseekers’ allowance
  • Income-related employment and support allowance
  • Support under Part IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of state pension credit
  • Child tax credit, provided that you are not also entitled to working tax credit and have an annual gross income of £16,190 or less
  • Universal credit
     

Please contact the school office if you feel you may meet the criteria as they can help you to register your child as eligible. office@eastwittering.w-sussex.sch.uk

If your child qualifies for free school meals, it’s important that you tell us – even if they take a packed lunch – as this enables us to claim pupil premium.
