Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

 

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.  Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to allow them to work with children who are registered for free school meals, are looked after children, or are children of service personnel.

 

Pupil premium funding is available to:

  • local-authority-maintained schools, including special schools, pupil referral units (PRUs), and voluntary-sector alternative provision (AP)
  • special schools not maintained by the local authority (NMSS)
  • academies and free schools, including special and AP academies.

 

Financial year 2014 to 2015

In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, schools receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,300 for pupils in reception year to year 6 - this will increase to £1,320 in the financial year 2015 - 2016
  • £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

 

Schools also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

 

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they attract the £1,900 rate.

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
