Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is government funding designed to help disadvantaged children and young people do well in school.

The funding is allocated to schools for children from yr 7 to 11 who have registered for free school meals in the last six years, are in care or have parents in the Armed Forces. Funding is also allocated to Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order).

In 2022/23 the funding allocated is £985 per child, £320 for children of Armed Forces families and £2,410 for children in care. Looked after children have funded allocated by the local authority whereas previously looked after children have funding allocated directly to school which is known as Pupil Premium+. Every school has a duty to ensure that every individual child is given the best possible chance of achieving their potential.
