學生保費

學生保費的目的

政府認為,除了主要學校資金之外的學生保費是解決目前有資格獲得免費學校餐 (FSM) 的兒童與其較富裕的同齡人之間潛在不平等的最佳方式,方法是確保解決劣勢的資金能夠惠及學生誰最需要它。

對於非主流環境中來自低收入家庭的學生,如何分配學生保費由地方當局決定。例如,它可以分配給他們接受教育的環境,或者由地方當局專門用於額外的教育支持,以提高這些學生的學習水平。當局必須就如何使用這些學生的保費諮詢非主流環境。

 

DfE 說:

學校可以在他們認為合適的情況下自由地花費學生的保費。但是,他們將對如何使用額外資金支持來自低收入家庭的學生負責。新的衡量標準將包含在表現表中,以反映學生保費涵蓋的貧困學生的成績。

父母和照顧者如何為學生保費計劃的成功做出貢獻?

如果您的孩子有資格獲得免費學校膳食,那麼即使他們不打算享用學校午餐,即使他們有權根據政府的“通用嬰兒免費學校膳食”計劃享受免費晚餐,也值得為他們註冊。它將對資金產生直接影響,並將最大限度地提供我們可以提供的支持。

父母的支持和參與是提高標準的關鍵因素。如果您在支持您的孩子方面需要幫助或建議,或者如果您不確定如何申請註冊免費學校膳食,請聯繫 Jacqui Darlington 夫人,她是學生保費條款的管理員。

Recovery Premium Funding 2021/2022

In February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery.

The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.

Pupil eligibility

The recovery premium will be allocated using the same data as the pupil premium. This means the following pupils will attract recovery premium funding to schools:

  • pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)

  • pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years

  • children looked after by local authorities and referred to as looked-after children (LAC)

  • post looked-after children (post-LAC)

Funding

Funding allocations

School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis.

Mainstream schools will get:

  • £145 for each eligible pupil in mainstream education

Payment schedule

The recovery premium will be paid in 4 payments to schools during the 2021 to 2022 academic year on the following schedule.

Maintained Schools Schedule of Payments:

Payments will be sent to local authorities on the last working day in:

  • September 2021

  • December 2021

  • April 2022

  • June 2022

Using recovery premium funding

Schools should spend this premium on evidence-based approaches to support pupils. In line with the Education Endowment Foundation’s pupil premium guide, activities should include those that:

  • support the quality of teaching, such as staff professional development

  • provide targeted academic support, such as tutoring

  • deal with non-academic barriers to success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support

Like the pupil premium, schools can:

  • spend the recovery premium on a wider cohort of pupils than those who attract the funding

  • direct recovery premium spending where they think the need is greatest

Reporting and accountability

Schools must show how they are using their recovery premium effectively:

  • by reporting on their use of recovery premium as part of their pupil premium strategy statement (see below)

  • through Ofsted inspections - as part of these inspections, inspectors may discuss plans schools have to spend their recovery premium funding

See proposed use of Recovery Premium Funding in the Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 21/22 below

Catch Up Funding 2020/2021

Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.

 

Schools’ allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in from Reception through to Year 6

 

As the catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant will only be available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. It will not be added to schools’ baselines in calculating future years’ funding allocations.
