What is Pupil Premium?

Schools are free to spend the pupil premium grant as they see fit.  However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support low-income families.

On this page are some useful documents that explain how we use the pupil premium grant here at Burbage and the impact that it is having on our children. 

Is your child entitled to Free School Meals?

Your child might be able to get free school meals if you get 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
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit

Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.

Even if your child does not want hot lunches, or they already receive one because of being in KS1, please tell the Office if you get any of the above benefits.

Burbage Primary School can get extra funding if you do.

Pupil Premium Report – Burbage Primary School – September 2019

Pupil Premium is additional funding given by the Government to schools in England to raise the attainment of specific groups of children that fall into the following categories:

  • Pupils who have been entitled to Free School Meals at any point over the last 6 years, due to qualifying for certain  benefits 
  • Pupils who have had a parent in the armed services at any point over the last 6 years
  • Pupils that are, or have been, looked after by the local authority or are adopted

The grant may be spent in the following ways:

  • for the purposes of the school, that is for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
  • for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies
  • on community facilities; for example, services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated

The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year in which it is allocated, some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.

The school's pupil premium strategy will next be reviewed in September 2020.
