Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil premium funding was introduced in April 2011 to narrow the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The government believes that Pupil Premium is the most effective way of ensuring that funding reached the pupils who need it most.  

Pupil premium funding is received for:

  • children who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years
  • children who have been looked after for 1 day or more
  • children who are adopted
  • children who leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or a Residence Order


How will the money be spent?

The government has stated that it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
