Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium
The Pupil Premium is extra money given to schools each year by the government.
Q: What’s it for?
A: It helps raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, to close the gap between them and their peers. Read the policy on how we spend the Pupil Premium money
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 many Pupil Premium children are there at Crosby?
A: This year there are 137 Pupil Premium children
Q: How much extra does that add to the school budget?
A: That adds £241,380 for 2021-22 to the budget.
Q: How do we know the money is being well spent? Do all these extra things help?
A: The Head teacher and the governors work hard to check that Pupil Premium money is spent effectively. During 2020/2021 Crosby Primary School received £185,000 pupil premium money.
