Pupil Premium

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

The Government has provided a package of pupil support funding money delegated from central Government to schools, based on a number of measures. This is known as Pupil Premium funding. These measures include eligibility for Free School Meals in the last 6 years, children whose parents are in the Armed Forces and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
 
At Bude Primary Academy we are using our pupil premium funding primarily to support narrowing the gap for disadvantaged pupils and supporting them in making better than expected progress in comparison to their peers. The majority of our pupil premium allocation is spent on teaching – providing one to one tuition to help individual children raise their attainment, small group teaching support in addition to the class teacher, and in class support. Additionally, funding is provided to enable pupil premium funded pupils to attend residential visits and trips.

Is my child eligible for Pupil Premium Funding?

Your child may be eligible for free school meals if you (or the child themselves in their own right) is in receipt of any of the following benefits.

  • Income Support (IS)
  • Job Seekers' Allowance (Income-Based) and equal based Job Seekers Allowance.
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA-IR) and equal based Employment and Support Allowance.
  • Child Tax Credit (CTC) with an Annual income of less than £16,190.
  • Guarantee Element of Pension Credit (GPC)
  • Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 (IAA) Support
  • Universal Credit

Please note that anyone claiming Working Tax Credit, Contribution-Based Job Seeker's Allowance and/or Contribution-Based Employment and Support Allowance is NOT eligible for free school meals, regardless of what other benefits/credits are being claimed. However, you will be temporarily eligible to claim free school meals if you receive a Working Tax Credit run-on, which is the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.
