Pupil Premium Funding

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can provide personalised support to pupils qualifying for the grant and close any attainment gap between them and their peers.

For pupils registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, schools receive £1345 per pupil.

For pupils registered as having left local authority care as a result of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or who have been in local authority care or looked after, schools receive £2345 per pupil.

Pupils from Service families also receive Pupil Premium Funding at the level of £310 per child.

Pupil Premium Funding is also received for eligible pupils in Early Years settings. This is funded at 53p per hour for each universal entitlement hour spent at their setting each term. 

If you think your child may be eligible for additional funding please contact the school office.


Funding paid to schools

The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium, assessing pupils’ needs to use the funding to improve attainment, drawing on evidence of effective practice. 

Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when schools use a tiered approach, targeting spending across 3 areas, with a particular focus on teaching.

1. Teaching

Investing in high-quality teaching, for example:

  • training and professional development for teachers
  • recruitment and retention
  • support for teachers early in their careers

2. Targeted academic support

Additional support for some pupils focussed on their specific needs, for example:

  • one-to-one tuition
  • small group tuition
  • speech and language therapy

3. Wider approaches

Support for non-academic issues that impact success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional challenges. For example:

  • school breakfast clubs
  • counselling to support emotional health and wellbeing
  • help with the cost of educational trips or visits


Schools must show how they’re using their pupil premium funding:

  • by publishing an online statement about how they use their funding and the impact it has on the attainment of disadvantaged pupils
  • through inspections by Ofsted
  • through published performance tables
