Alwoodley Primary Pupil Premium School Summary 2018 - 2019
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It's designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.
In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, schools will receive £1,320 for pupils in Reception to Year 6 who are eligible for free school meals or have been at any point in the last 6 years.
Schools will also receive £2,300 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of one of the following:
• a special guardianship order
• a child arrangements order
• a residence order
Children who have been in local authority care, for one day or more, also attract £2,300 of pupil premium funding.
Schools are free to spend the pupil premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.
