Pupil Premium

                             Wykeham Primary School Pupil Premium                              

2015/2016

The Pupil Premium is a government grant allocated to all schools, based on the number of children who have received Free School Meals in the past six years. Nationally, pupils who receive Free School Meals under perform in comparison to those children who do not and Pupil Premium funding is therefore allocated to this vulnerable group of pupils in order to close the attainment gap.

Your child may be entitled to Free School Meals, if you are entitled to receive any of the following:

Income Support
Income -based Job seeker's Allowance
Income related Employment and Support Allowance
The guarantee element of State Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit, provided you are entitled to working tax credit and have an annual income (as accessed by HM Revenue and 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
Incapacity Benefit

Apply for Pupil Premium

In September 2015 there were 76 children in receipt of Free School Meals and 159 children who have received Free School Meals at some point during the past six years. This compares to 101 children receiving Free School Meals in 2014 and 155 who had received Free School Meals in the previous six years. This figure continues to be roughly in line with the national average. The school writes annually to parents explaining Free School Meals entitlement setting out the benefits to the school and family. Despite this however, we are aware that not all eligible families at Wykeham Primary School choose to apply for Free School Meals.

At Wykeham Primary School we continually strive to close the achievement gap between pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding and other pupils nationally.  The additional funds provided by the government for this purpose is spent on a range of resources and staffing with the view to ensuring improved outcomes for our pupils eligible for the pupil premium grant.
