Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to schools from the government to tackle the barriers that financial disadvantage produces for young learners. The purpose of the funding is to narrow the achievement gap for disadvantaged (DA) students.

The funding is allocated based on the number of students who have been eligible for Free School Meals in the last six years of their education. It also includes any “looked after children” and children who have parents in the Armed Forces. Schools decide how the “Pupil Premium” allocation is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.
