Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.  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’)
  • have been looked after continuously for more than six months (LAC)
  • are children of service personnel

Financial information:

Each secondary aged pupil is allocated £935

Schools also receive £2,300 for each pupil who:

  • has been looked after for 1 day or more
  • has been adopted from care
  • has left care under:
    • a special guardianship order
    • a residence order
    • a child arrangement order

Ever 6 Service Children who have ever been on record receive £300 each.

Children on the school role at the annual census who have been on FSM in the last six years will also gain extra funding for the school.

The pupil premium allocation for 2018-19 is £226,270.
