The total amount for each school shown in this sheet should match the total I05 figure shown in the March 2012 Advances Schedule.

Guidance from the DfE on identifying eligible "Ever 6" FSM pupils - schools should continue to use the information supplied via Key To Success to help them calculate which pupils are eligible for pupil premium in 2014/15. As the latest data available will be based on children eligible at the January 2013 Census, schools should not count any pupils that have left by the January 2014 Census, and should add in any pupils that have started between the January 2013 and January 2014 Censuses. This guidance note from the DfE explains how schools can do this in more detail; if there are any technical queries, schools should contact their IT provider.

Accountability

The DfE holds headteachers and school governing bodies accountable for the impact of pupil premium funding in the following ways:

  • performance tables, which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers
  • requiring schools to publish details online each year of how they are using the pupil premium and the impact it is having on pupil achievement
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, where inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium

Schools must include the following information when publishing details on their websites:

  • the pupil premium allocation for the current academic year
  • details of how the school intends to spend the allocation
  • details of how the school spent the previous academic year’s allocation
  • how it made a difference to the attainment of disadvantaged pupils

The funding is allocated for each financial year, but the information you publish online should refer to the academic year, as this is how parents and the general public understand the school year.

As allocations will not be known for the latter part of the academic year (April to July), schools should report on the funding up to the end of the financial year and update it when they have all the figures.

For the 2014-15 academic year, for example, schools should base their academic year allocation on 7/12's of the 2014/15 financial year alloction plus 5/12's of the 2015/16 financial year allocation (final figures for 2015/16 should be updated on school websites once confirmed by the DfE in summer 2015).

The DfE website here gives further information.

Pupil Premium 2014/15

The headline information for 2014/15 allocations is as follows:

  • Primary FSM 'Ever 6' pupils attract £1,300 per eligible FTE pupil on roll in the January 2014 Census
  • Secondary FSM 'Ever 6' pupils attract £935 per eligible FTE pupil on roll in the January 2014 Census
  • Service children attract £300 per eligible FTE pupil on roll in the January 2014 Census. Any pupil in reception to year 11 who has been flagged as a service child since 2011 will continue to receive the service premium (‘Ever 4’ measure).
  • Children who are looked after attract £1,900; this will be allocated based on eligible reception to year 11 pupils on roll in each of the termly censuses, so an amount of £633 will be allocated for eligible looked after children in each term.
  • Children who are adopted from care, or who left care under a Special Guardianship Order (SGO) on or after 30 December 2005, or who left care under a Residence Order (RO) since their introduction in October 1991, attract £1,900 provided they are recorded on the January 2014 School Census. A school can only record a child as eligible under this category in the January Census if they have received information about the child’s circumstances and supporting evidence (e.g. a photocopy of the Adoption (Court) Order) from the parents or guardians. The January 2014 Census has a new field called “Adopted from care” for schools to record eligible children so that they attract this funding. See the census guidance page for further information.
