19 January 2017 - Change in PPG FSM allocation in Quarter 3

A number of schools have seen a change in their Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), Free School Meal (FSM) entitlement in quarter 3. This is due to the March 2016 looked after children return update.

Where a child has become looked after since the January 2016 census, their funding is distributed to the virtual school and stops being distributed through the FSM allocations (see Pupil Premium Grant Terms and Conditions on the Gov.UK website).

This adjustment is backdated to the start of the financial year. More information on how the virtual school (virtualschool@northamptonshire.gov.uk) manage the LAC funding is available on the grants webpage.
