The Pupil Premium is additional funding paid to schools in respect of their disadvantaged pupils (pupils who have been registered for free schools meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years or are looked after continuously by the local authority for more than six months or whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces ). Schools receive this funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers.
How much is the premium?
The level of premium per pupil is:
Primary school age pupils (Years Reception – 6) – £1345
Secondary school age pupils (Years 7-11) – £955
Looked after Children and post-looked after children – £2345
Children with parents in the armed forces – £310
A school’s grant allocations are based on the number of eligible pupils recorded on the most recent January census.
