Every little helps....
Pate;s are using the pupil premium and looked after to allocate the first places available out of the 180 - doesn't say anything about the service premium though..
The rank order of these 180 ‘qualifying’ children is used, along with other criteria
listed below, to allocate available spaces in the following order:
• any ‘looked-after’ children1
in the list of 180 qualifying children;
• any of the 180 who, at Registration, qualify for the Pupil Premium; and then
• Test rank order, until all Year 7 spaces are allocated.
The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 for pupils in England from low-income families
In 2011-12 it was set at £488 per pupil - £625m in total and in 2012/13 it rose to £600 - £1.25bn in total
The premium is available for children eligible for free school meals and pupils in care
It has been extended from 2012-13 to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the past six years
Schools are free to spend the extra funding as they see fit but from September 2012, the government requires schools to publish information about how they use it
There is also a service premium for children whose parents serve in the armed forces; this was £200 in 2011-12 and rose to £250 for 2012-13
