The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’.
This money could enable us to fund additional resources. For example, extra one to one tuition, new equipment and materials for pupils or provide extra classroom support.
This criteria for eligibility is where parents/guardians are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:
Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400.
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
The guarantee element of Pension Credit
Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190
No other benefits qualify for pupil premium for Key Stage 1.
A parent or guardian may wish to check their child's eligibility for Pupil Premium.
