What is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units.
Schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,345 for primary-aged pupils
- £995 for secondary-aged pupils
Schools will also receive £2345 for each looked-after pupil who:
- has been looked after for 1 day or more
- was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under:
- a special guardianship order
- a residence order
The Service Premium is a strand of the Pupil Premium paid to schools in respect of children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
Please see below for details of how we will use this additional funding. Please note that this is a working document that may be subject to change over the course of the academic year.
