Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11. The Government gives schools pupil premium funding for:

  • every child currently registered as eligible for free school meals
  • all children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
  • children who have been looked after by the local authority
  • children whose parents serve in the armed forces

The Pupil Premium funding for 2018-19 allocated schools with £1320 per disadvantaged child of primary school age.

The decision about how to spend this additional funding is for schools to decide. Nationally there is considerable evidence to show that children in receipt of Free School Meals achieve less well than their peers. The purpose of the additional funding is to ensure that the school addresses the social, emotional and academic needs of disadvantaged pupils and enables us to improve their attainment and progress.

We will ensure that the funding is used for the appropriate pupils and that it makes a significant impact and their education and lives.
