Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding.

This fund was introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools
each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.
This is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well
at school than their peers. Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face
challenges such as poor language and communication skills, lack of confidence and issues
with attendance and punctuality. The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the
children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates.

Schools are given a pupil premium for:
• Children who have qualified for free school meals at any point in the past six years. The
school receives £1320 for each of these children.
• Children who are or have been looked after under local authority care for more than one
day. These children are awarded a premium of £2300.
• Children from service families who receive a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.
They are awarded £300.

Schools can choose how to spend their pupil premium money, as they are best placed to
identify what would be of most benefit to the children who are eligible.
