How Plymstock School uses the Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided by the Department for Education to enhance the education of the most socio-economically deprived students. Allocation of funding is made according to the number of students entitled to free school meals within the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM) and children in care (known as LAC) that attend the school in Years 7-11. There is also additional Pupil Premium funding (known as the Service Premium) for any student who has or has had within the last four years a parent in the armed forces (known as Ever 6 service child). Please see our Service Family page within Parent Information for more details.

Was your adopted child formally a ‘looked after child’ and adopted on or after 30 December 2005?
Schools in England can now receive the Pupil Premium funding for children adopted from care, or who left care under a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005. Schools can also claim the Pupil Premium for children who left care under a Residence Order on or after 14 October 1991.
To enable us to claim the Pupil Premium, which can then be used to further support your child, you will need to inform us about your child and provide supporting evidence, for example, show the school the original Adoption (Court) Order. You will need to self-declare before 1st January 2019, which is the date schools, complete the annual School Census. This will then trigger the payment of the Pupil Premium to the school from April 2019.
Please send any supporting evidence to the school addressed to Mr Chick, Assistant Headteacher.
If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact the school.
