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, such as special schools and pupil referral units. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:

  • registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years; and
  • in care for 6 months or longer.

In the 2021/22 financial year, primary schools will receive £1345 for each eligible pupil.  Looked After Children (LAC), or pupils who have previously been LAC, are eligible for £2345.  In addition, schools will receive Service Pupil Premium, for those pupils whose parents are Regular Armed Forces personnel. £310 will be allocated per pupil, to provide support.

The Pupil Premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need, and Headteachers and school governing bodies are accountable for the impact of Pupil Premium funding. This is monitored through:

  • performance tables, which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers ; and
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, where inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium.
