Those families who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years. This is sometimes known as ‘the ever six’.

Students are eligible for Pupil Premium Plus if they have left Local Authority care because of one of these reasons:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order.

If a student has left Local Authority care and is eligible for free school meals, they just receive the Pupil Premium Plus money. (Not Pupil Premium & Pupil Premium Plus).

 

Those students who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more are also eligible for Pupil Premium Plus.

 

The amount received is £1900 per pupil.

 

The Service Premium gives schools extra funding to support children and young people with parents in the armed forces. Students 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)
