Pupil Premium at Camelford Primary School

Using our Pupil Premium funding, we aim to break the link between poverty and destiny.

Our ultimate aim is that pupils who are entitled to the Pupil Premium will outperform other pupils nationally.

This page outlines what the Pupil Premium is and how you can find out if your child is entitled to it. The following pages outline how we spend our Pupil Premium funding and the impact that it has on our pupils. You can view them by clicking on the quick links below this section or by using the page arrows at the bottom of each page.

What is Pupil Premium?

The government provides additional funding to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

We receive pupil premium funding for: children that are in care or adopted from care; children whose parents are in the armed forces; children currently receiving free school meals* and all children who have received free school meals at some point during the past 6 years.

*All pupils in Reception and Key Stage 1 are entitled to free school meals but this DOES NOT mean that they receive Pupil Premium funding. It is therefore vital that parents/carers apply for Pupil Premium funding if they feel that their child is entitled to it.

Who can apply?

Your child may be eligible for free school meals if you (or the child themselves in their own right) is in receipt of any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support (IS)
  • Job Seekers' Allowance (Income-Based) and equal based Job Seekers Allowance.
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA-IR) and equal based Employment and Support Allowance.
  • Child Tax Credit (CTC) with an Annual income of less than £16,190.
  • Guarantee Element of Pension Credit (GPC)
  • Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 (IAA) Support
  • Universal Credit
