Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium


The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.  To receive the funding the pupil needs to be registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years.  There is extra funding available for pupils who have left local-authority care as a result of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)
  • who has been in local-authority care for 1 day or more
  • recorded as both eligible for FSM in the last 6 years and as being looked after (or as having left local-authority care)
    "It is for the schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility." Source DfE
    We are using the additional funding for:
  •  Mentoring
  • 1:1 and small group intervention
  • Pastoral Support - including Emotional Support
  • Behavioural Support
  • Revision classes and homework clubs
  • Tracking and assessment of pupil progress
  • Educational Psychologist Assessments
  • Attendance Support - Education Welfare Officer
    NB: Please refer to the Service Pupil Premium page of the website for information on the Service Pupil Premium Grant.
