The analysis of pupil premium numbers in SIMS is dependant upon the pupil premium indicator box being ticked within section 9 additional information.

This tick box is used by SIMS to identify pupils eligible for pupil premium funding within Discover and SIMS Assessment.

The key to success file downloaded from the DfE secure site contains pupil records for pupils eligible for the pupil premium based on the last January Pupil Census.

It is important that a school contacts the previous school and confirms the eligibility of any pupil admitted after this date without a CTF file being imported.

A standard CTF file will contain Pupil Premium information therefore it is only those admitted without this process who will need to be manually confirmed with their previous school.
