Pupil Premium Funding

Stoke Goldington Church of England First School now receives 'Pupil Premium' funding which is awarded to schools for each pupil registered for a Free School Meal.  Currently, this funding is £1,320 per pupil. The money is paid directly to schools and is used to improve the educational outcomes for children entitled to a free school meal.
Entitlement to free school meals is kept as confidential as possible. The free school meal will remain in place for as long as your child continues to attend school in Milton Keynes and you continue to be entitled to one of the qualifying benefits listed below

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

If your child is entitled, you can collect a form from the School Office. If you would like to talk to us, in confidence, about how to claim or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the office staff.

Please consider claiming pupil premium if you are eligible as the funding will be spent directly upon YOUR child.

Impact of the Pupil Premium Funding -

Schools are obliged to report on pupil premium funding each year. The impact of the funding is described in general terms due to small numbers on role.

The school's pupil premium allocation in respect of the academic year 2015/16 was nil.

The school's pupil premium allocation in respect of the academic year 2014/15 was nil.

The school's pupil premium allocation in respect of the academic year 2013/14 was £1,906 as there were two pupils attending the school who triggered this funding. This small allocation was spent on providing temporary additional 1 - 1 teaching support for the pupils to help 'narrow the gap'.  The impact of this expenditure saw individual progress in reading, writing and speaking and listening.

In 2012/13 the school received NO pupil premium funding.
