Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement.


The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.


The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).


Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after by the local authority continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.


The government requires all schools to report on the amount of funding received, how it will be allocated/spent and the effect of this expenditure on pupil attainment.

In September 2020, the Government made a decision to release funding to schools to support the catch-up of pupils as a result of National Lockdowns throughout Spring and Summer terms in 2020. Schools evaluate the impact of the allocation of this funding on a termly basis.
