Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy

Pupil Premium 2013-2014

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is a type of funding additional to the main school funding.  It is received from the government each academic year and is allocated to students under a few different criteria, the main being for those students from low-income families who are eligible for Free School Meals. The following groupings are also eligible for the Pupil Premium; Looked After Children and children with parents in the armed forces.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit within specific parameters.

The initiative started in 2011 when £488 was allocated for each eligible student, this amount increasing to £600 for each student in 2012 £900 for the year ending 2013 and £930 for the academic year 2013-2014. In 2012, the eligibility for Pupil Premium was extended to students who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years, so a year 8 student who was eligible when they were in year 3 would count. This 6 year eligibility is known as the ‘Ever 6 Free School Meals Measure’.

Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy received £74630 for the year 2013-2014.
