Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium

Q: How do you know which pupils are  disadvantaged?
A: Each child who has registered as eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years counts for Pupil Premium. (Apply for Free School Meals at the Northlincs Website)

Q: How much do they get?
A: The pupils don’t get the money, but the school gets £1,320 extra funding for each primary aged child.

Q: Do any other children get pupil premium money?
A: Schools also receive £2,300 for each pupil who:
– has been looked after for 1 day or more
– has been adopted from care
– has left care under a special guardianship order

So what are we aiming to do this year?

Q: How much extra does that add to the school budget?

Q: How do we know the money is being well spent? Do all these extra things help?
