The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families achieve their very best. For every child registered, The Greville Primary School receives £1,345.
Schools are free to decide how to use this allocation, considering how best to support individual pupils with additional provision. However, we are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support low income families.
The Government allocates funding based on information taken from our school database on census days.
How does it work?
Are you in receipt of any of the following benefits?
- Income Support
ii) Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
iii) Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
iv) Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
v) The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs)
vii) Working Tax Credit run-on which is paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
If eligible, your child can have a free healthy meal at lunchtime saving you more than £350 a year, and the school will receive £1,345. Your child does not have to take the free school meal and the school will still receive the funding as long as you register.
The school can also claim additional funding for:
Children of Service Families
The Service Premium is designed to support children with parents serving in the regular British armed forces.
Pupils attract the premium if they meet the following criteria:
- one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces
- one of their parents served in the regular armed forces in the last 5 years
- one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil is in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)
Schools will receive £310 for each eligible pupil.
Pupil Premium Plus
The Government has extended funding to schools to provide for children who are under a Special Guardianship Order or who have been Adopted from Local Authority Care under The Adoption Act 2002. Schools will receive £2,345 for each eligible pupil. In order for the school to receive this additional funding for your child, parents/carers need to bring their Adoption Order or Special Guardianship Order to the school office for the attention of Mrs Goram.
We would like to assure you that any information shared with the school will be kept confidential in line with Data Protection requirements.
If you think your child may be entitled to Pupil Premium, Service Premium or Pupil Premium Plus, please indicate on the Registration form.
