What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to support disadvantaged pupils. Forest Moor School receives additional funding for looked after children and for every pupil who has received free school meals over the past 6 years. Please follow the link to the Department for Education to find out more about this funding.https://www.gov.uk/guidance/pupil-premium-information-for-schools-and-alternative-provision-settings

 

We up-date our records regularly to make sure we have an accurate account of the school population.  However, if your circumstances change please inform the school office.

 

There are four categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:

Disadvantaged pupils

  • Ever6 FSM pupils who are, or have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years (Reception to Year 11)
  • Looked After Children (LAC)
  • Children who have left care through adoption

Service pupils

  • Ever6 Service pupils or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence (Reception to Year 11)

 

If you are in receipt of any of the following your child is eligible for free school meals:          

  • Income Support
  • Income based jobseeker’s allowance
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child tax credit, provided they are not entitled to working tax credit and have an annual income, as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs, that does not exceed £16,190
  • The guarantee element of state pension credit
  • Employment support allowance

 

In line with our vision and values, Forest Moor School seeks to ensure the effectiveness of its use of the Pupil Premium.  As a result we have based our spending priorities on high quality research such as the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) Teaching and Learning Toolkit, which is an accessible summary of educational research providing guidance for teachers and schools on how to use their resources to improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.  You can find out more about this by downloading the Education Endowment Foundation toolkit https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/resources/teaching-learning-toolkit
