Grants from the Department for Education (DfE)
In 2011 the government announced additional funding to schools to help us support children who are entitled to free school meals. Nationally the attainment data shows that children who are entitled to free school meals don't do as well as those children who are not. The government gives Stroud Green additional money, known as the Pupil Premium Grant, for every child who is entitled to free school meals, and we are asked to account for how we spend the money, making sure it makes a real difference to children's lives. We are very proud of the attainment of our children at Stroud Green and use our pupil premium money to make sure that children entitled to FSMs make good and outstanding progress. Attached is our latest Pupil Premium Action Plan, as well the DfE guidance on how we can spend the funds. Broadly, we receive £1,320 for each child entitled to free school meals.
We also receive Pupil Premium Plus. This is additional funding for those children who have been adopted, long-term fostered or are under special guardianship. Each child eligible will receive an additional allowance of £1,900 per year to help us support them with their learning. Attached is a financial report showing how we are spending this money over the next 12 months.
