Pupil Premium Funding

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding that the government gives to schools for each pupil on roll where they are deemed to be disadvantaged. The money must be spend on that pupil to support their education, but it is for the school to determine how it is spent

Why is the Government providing Pupil Premium?

Poverty of low income is the single most important factor in predicting a child's future life chances, and with many pupils having low attainment by the time they leaveschool at age 16. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address these underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage pupils reaches the pupils who need it most.

Who receives the Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is allocated to pupils in school year groups from Reception to Year 11 from low income families who are registered for FSM, or who have been registered for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6’), together with children that have been in care continuously for 6 months or more or have been adopted.

What is the Service Premium?

The Service Premium grant is for pupils who have a parent serving in the armed services. Unlike Pupil Premium, this grant is not solely for raising attainment but for providing additional (mainly pastoral) support

Who receives the Service Premium?

Pupils with parents currently serving in the armed services and supporting their family, pupils who have a parent who died in action and those whose parents have left the service.
