Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?


The Pupil Premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11. It was introduced in April 2011 for every child registered for free school meals (FSM) and children who had been looked after (LAC) for 6 months or more. Schools were then given an additional £400 per pupil.

From April 2012, pupil premium funding was also extended to all children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years. This generated a total of £16,500 for 2012 -2013; £25,200 for 2013 -2014.

In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, funding for the pupil premium has increased to £1,300 per pupil and £I,900 per pupil for looked-after children who have been looked after for 1 day or more, or are adopted or leave care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order.  In 2014- 15 the pupil premium funding will be £62,172.
