Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is a sum of money the government gives to schools each year to help them improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.  The amount each school gets is determined by the number of pupils at school who:

  • have been eligible for free school meals at some point in the last 6 years
  • are looked after by the local authority
  • are no longer looked after by a local authority because they have been adopted, had a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order

For each child who has been eligible for free school meals at some point in the last 6 years, primary schools receive £1320 and secondary schools receive £935.
