Pupil Premium

General Pupil Premium Information

 (taken from

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. For the Financial Year beginning 1 April 2017 PPG provides funding for two policies: (1) raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential; and (2) supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.


Pupil Premium funding is available to:

  • schools maintained by the local authority, including special schools for children with special educational needs or disabilities and pupils referral units (PRUs) for children who can't go to a mainstream school
  • academies and free schools, including special academies for children with special education needs or disabilities; alternative provision (AP) academies for children who can't go to a mainstream school
  • voluntary sector AP with local authority agreement
  • non-maintained special schools (NMSS) for children with special education needs as approved by the Secretary of State for Education under Section 342 of the Education Act 1992.


In the 2017 - 2018 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free schools meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,320 for pupils in Reception year to Year 6
  • £935 for pupils in Year 7 to Year 11.

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order.
  • £300 for service children or in receipt of child pension from the MoD


Based on information provided by the DfE, this school's pupil premium funding for 2018 -2019 will be £42,900.

Pupil Premium Targeted Support

At Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed School we have looked very carefully at every child who is in receipt of Pupil Premium (including Pupil Premium Plus) funding.  This has involved analysing data relating to individuals as well as using other observations on the child’s progress, barriers to their learning, plus any outside school issues that may be affecting the child’s ability to learn.


The outcome of this audit is a focussed plan of targeted support 2016-2017.  This plan can be opened below (please take a look).  We have identified areas of need to ensure all children make expected progress and continue to, in line with their peers.  In selecting our interventions, we have made use of the Sutton Trust Education Endowment Foundation's 'Learning Toolkit'.  All of our children, who attract Pupil Premium funding, will receive the support from one or more of these groups.


Termly monitoring will take place so that we can measure the impact of our targeted support to ensure that all children are making expected progress and that their attainment is in line with National expectations or above.  Last year’s impact on progress can be seen in the ‘Pupil Premium Progress Table 2015-2016’ below.
