DfE will allocate PPG to schools and local authorities (who must allocate for each FTE pupil on the January 2018 school census, at each school they maintain) the following amounts:
•£1,320 per pupil for each Ever 6 FSM FTE pupil aged 4 and over in year groups reception to year 6, except where the pupil is allocated the LAC or post-LAC premium
•£935 per pupil for each Ever 6 FSM FTE in year groups 7 to 11, except where the pupil is allocated the LAC or post-LAC Premium
•£2,300 per pupil for each post-LAC in year groups reception to year 11
•£300 for each pupil aged 4 and over in year groups reception to year 11 who is either Ever 6 service child FTE or in receipt of pensions under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)
For pupils recorded aged 5 and over on the school census, PPG will be allocated on the basis of sole and dual main registrations only.
The Government Policy on Pupil Premium eligibility states which pupils are entitled to funding .
3.1 Ever 6 Free School Meals (FSM)
The pupil premium for 2018 to 2019 will include pupils recorded in the January 2018 school census who are known to have been eligible for FSM since May 2012, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2018.
3.2 Children adopted from care or who have left care
The pupil premium for 2018 to 2019 will include pupils recorded in the January 2018 school census and alternative provision census, who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order). These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.
3.3 Ever 6 service child
For the purposes of these grant conditions, Ever 6 service child means a pupil recorded in the January 2018 school census who was eligible for the service child premium since the January 2013 census as well as those recorded as a service child for the first time on the January 2018 school census. The grant will be allocated as set out in sections 4, 5 and 6 below. Where national curriculum year groups do not apply to a pupil, the pupil will attract PPG if aged 4 to 15 as recorded in the January 2018 school census.
The grant may be spent in the following ways:
•for the purposes of the school; that is, for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
•for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies
•on community facilities; for example, services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated
The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year beginning 1 April 2018; some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.
