Pupil Premium Funding


Sometimes children may need extra help or support; the Pupil Premium is one of a number of ways in which pupils may be supported.


The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. The grant is paid directly to schools in addition to standard funding. The amount received by a school is calculated from the number of pupils who are eligible in the following categories:


  • Entitlement to Free School Meals (at any time in the last 6 years)
  • Children who have ever been in the care of the Local Authority
  • Children of active Service personnel.

Use of the Pupil Premium Funding


It’s up to school leaders to decide how to spend the pupil premium. This is because school leaders are best-placed to assess their pupils’ needs and use funding to improve attainment.

Pupil Premium funding may be used

  • To provide targeted interventions or additional small group work for pupils.
  • To purchase specific resources to support individual learning needs.
  • To help with the cost of educational visits.
  • As well as supporting learning, it may be used to support children’s well-being and resilience where appropriate
