Premium Funding

Pupil Premium

If after reading the below information you feel that your child(ren) may be eligible for Pupil Premium Funding, please contact Ms. D. Coburn (School Business Manager) or a member of our Admin Team.

At Longmoor, approximately 32% of our pupils receive ‘Pupil Premium Funding’.

Pupil Premium Funding is awarded to publicly funded schools in England. The pupil premium grant is funding to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in state-funded schools in England.

  • For the 2034 to 2024 financial year, schools have received the following funding for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years: £1,455;
  • Pupils previously looked after by a local authority or other state care: £2,530;
  • Children who are looked after by the local authority: £2,530 (Paid to the children’s Local Authority)

On Wednesday 22nd November 2023, the Curriculum and Standards Committee of the school’s Governing Board were presented with the 22/23 Review and 23/34 Strategy, which were both recommended to the Full Governing Board for their ratification, which occurred on Wednesday 29th November 2023.

A copy of both the review and strategy documentation can be found further down this page within the ‘Pupil Premium Documents’ section.

Service Pupil Premium

Service pupil premium is additional funding for schools with pupils who have parents serving in the armed forces. It has been combined into pupil premium payments to make it easier for schools to manage their spending.

Pupils in state-funded schools in England attract the service pupil premium grant, at the rate of £335 per eligible pupil in financial year 2023-24, if they meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces, including pupils with a parent who is on full commitment as part of the full-time reserve service – this includes pupils with a parent who is in the armed forces of another nation and is stationed in England
  • registered as a ‘service child’ on any school census in the past 6 years
  • one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil receives a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the War Pensions Scheme

This funding is primarily to enable schools to offer pastoral support and help mitigate the negative impact of family mobility or parental deployment. It can also be used to help improve the academic progress of eligible pupils if the school deems this to be a priority.
