Pupil Premium

Our Pupil Premium Strategy

At St. Wilfrid’s Church of England Primary Academy, we believe that every child deserves a ‘high quality’ education and we ensure that all children thrive, both academically and personally. Through analysis, we identify any barriers to children’s learning. Consultation with pupils, parents and teachers is undertaken to plan appropriate actions and strategies, based on National research, to overcome barriers and enable children to experience success. All children, including those eligible for Pupil Premium, achieve well, make excellent progress and are well-prepared for the next stage in their learning.

 Information about Pupil Premium

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 20223. PPG provides funding for two 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


Rates for eligible pupils

The PPG per-pupil for 2023 to 2024 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)


Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM


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


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



Service children

Pupil 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



 Ever 6 free school meals

The pupil premium for 2023 to 2024 will include pupils recorded in the October 2022 school census who are known to have been eligible for FSM since May 2017, as well as those first known to be eligible at October 2022

Children adopted from care or who have left care

The pupil premium for 2022 to 2023 will include pupils recorded in the January 2022 school census and alternative provision 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 child

For the purposes of these grant conditions, Ever 6 service child means a pupil recorded in the October 2022 school census who was eligible for the service child premium since the January 2017 census as well as those recorded as a service child for the first time on the October 2022 school census. The grant will be allocated as set out below. Where national curriculum year groups do not apply to a pupil, the pupil will attract PPG if aged 4 to 15 as recorded in the October 2022 school census.
