It also includes:
- pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years
- children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
Schools receives a payment, or Pupil Premium, for each child who is registered for free school meals and those who have been in continuous care for six months or more and children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.
The Service Premium gives schools extra funding to support children and young people with parents in the 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 3 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)
- targeted deployment of other adults in the classrooms and specific training so that they are better equipped to meet the needs of individual or small groups of pupils.
- the implementation of our ‘Drawing and Talking’ programme which is designed to support the emotional needs of pupils across the school and one which has led to pupils being supported with areas such as bereavement & the development of social skills
