Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, like special schools and pupil referral units.

Schools receive extra funding to support each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years, and those who have a parent in the Armed Forces.

Schools will also receive funding to support the needs of each looked-after pupil who:

  • has been looked after for 1 day or more
  • was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under:
    • a special guardianship order
    • a residence order

For more information, please contact Ms D Millington on 01283 216404
