Allocation

Pupil Premium Allocation 2021-2022

The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a specific grant allocated by the government which is based on the school census figures for pupils registered as being eligible for the funding.

The Secretary of State for Education lays down the following terms and conditions on which assistance is given in relation to the pupil premium grant (PPG) payable to schools and local authorities for the financial year beginning 1 April 2020.

PPG provides funding for two separate policies:

  • raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
  • supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

The PPG per-pupil rate for 2021 to 2022 is as follows:

Disadvantaged pupils         

Pupil premium per pupil

Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals (FSM)

£1,345

Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM

£955

Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority

£2,345

Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)

£2,345

Service children

Service premium per pupil

Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence

£310

 

Eligibility

Ever 6 free school meals children

For mainstream and special schools, the pupil premium for 2021 to 2022 will include pupils recorded in the October 2020 school census who have had a recorded period of FSM eligibility since January 2015, as well as those first recorded as eligible at October 2020.

For the purposes of these grant conditions, these pupils are collectively referred to as Ever 6 FSM.

Children with no recourse to public funds (NRPF)

For 2021 to 2022, pupil premium eligibility is being extended to pupils eligible for free school meals under the temporary extension set out in the coronavirus (covid-19): temporary extension of free school meals eligibility to NRPF groups guidance. As these pupils are not registered as eligible in the school census, eligible schools will need to make a claim for additional pupil premium funding for these pupils. Further details on the claims process for these pupils will be published in due course.

Children adopted from care or who have left care

For mainstream and special schools, the pupil premium for 2021 to 2022 will include pupils recorded in the October 2020 school census, who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order). These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.

Ever 6 service children

For mainstream and special schools, the service premium for 2021 to 2022 will include pupils recorded in the October 2020 school census who have been eligible for the service child premium at any point since the January 2015 census as well as those recorded as a service child for the first time in the October 2020 school census.

For the purposes of these grant conditions, these pupils are collectively referred to as Ever 6 service children. Service children are not regarded as disadvantaged; their premium is allocated for pastoral support purposes.

The Trustees of The Cherry Tree Trust are committed to narrowing the educational gap for our vulnerable pupils. So that the Pupil Premium money is spent wisely, making maximum impact for the vulnerable pupils Trustees have reviewed the support that has been put in place using the Pupil Premium Funding. We know that our previous decisions have been beneficial to our vulnerable learners as data statistics show that;  

68% of Disadvantaged pupils achieved the expected standard compared to 71% of 'Other' pupils Nationally. Therefore, there is an achievement gap of 3%. National Disadvantaged is 51%. The performance of Disadvantaged pupils in school is similar or better than 'Other' pupils Nationally

 

From our Pupil Premium budget of £460,000 we have allocated fixed cost interventions for 2021 /22:

Inclusion Team consisting of:

Safeguarding Team (£62,000)

Attendance Team (£39,000)

Behaviour Support Team (including School Counsellor SEMH Support) (£126,000)

Curriculum Support consisting of:

Phonics Intervention (Read Write Inc) (£20,000)

Reading Support (£6,000)

Yoga (£8,000)

Support with trips and activities (£40,000)

Music Tuition (£10,000)

The remaining monies will be used for additional initiatives allocated and assigned to the individual child. In addition to these costings are the costs of any after school activities, uniform, trips, St John’s Ambulance – First Aid Training, transport that are not charged for Disadvantaged children. These costs are allocated to each child on Provision Map Writer.
