You are here: About Us - Pupil Premium
Schools receive additional funding for any pupils who have been eligible for free school meals during the last six years; pupils who are looked after by the local authority or who are in care and for pupils from families where a parent serves in the armed forces. This money is known as the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG).
In the 2018-19 financial year, schools will receive £1320 for each pupil in Rec to Y6 who has registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left-authority care because of 1 of the following:
A special guardianship order
A child arrangements order
A residence order
Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding.
Free School Meals forms can be found on the Wakefield Council website or click here.
