Pupil Premium Funding at Sherington CE School

Sherington CE School now receives Pupil Premium funding which is awarded to schools for each pupil registered for a Free School Meal (entitlement to free school meals is kept as confidential as possible). The money is paid direct to schools. 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 V1 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 and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190.00.
  • 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, or download the one on this page. 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.

Impact of PPG spending 2014-2015

Standards of those children receiving Pupil Premium Grant have risen in KS1. Children made significant progress in reading, writing and maths with 100% achieving a good level of development. The introduction of the school’s Visions and Values statements have helped children to improve their self-esteem, self-image and take responsibility for their own behaviour and attitude to learning. Children entitled to PPG have benefitted from greater TA support which has led to a greater level of progress.

Impact of PPG spending 2015-2016

Children made at least expected progress and attained the expected outcome for their year group across all subjects.  The trips enhanced real life experiences which gave increased information for the children to use in their writing.

The children were supported in areas which they found difficult, one being sport. The children were engaged and enthusiastic about PE sessions by the end of the year because of intervention during these sessions. They had successful sports day interaction.

Are you eligible for free school meals?

A new Citizen Portal has been launched to help you find out if your child qualifies for free school meals.

 

Please visit to sign up, even if your child is in year R, 1 or 2 and receiving universal free school meals, or if you have applied before and do not think you are eligible.

 

In doing so you will help us to find out whether we can claim pupil premium for your child. This is additional funding to spend on resources such as extra staff, books or school trips for eligible children.

 

The system is quick and simple to use and can be accessed via a smartphone or hand held device. If you qualify, you will receive a reference number that you simply bring in and show us at school to start receiving meals. Please register at https://emsonline.milton-keynes.gov.uk/CitizenPortal_LIVE
