Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children, ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for 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.  The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools per Free School Meals (FSM) pupil (any pupil who has been eligible for Free School Meals during the last six years).  It is also allocated to children in care (LAC or CLA), adopted children an those whose parents are in the services.


Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils. Since September 2012, schools have been required to publish online information about how they have used the Pupil Premium.


Whilst Pupil Premium funding is targeted at those in receipt of FSM (ever 6) or those who are otherwise eligible, other children in the school may also benefit. Objectives and projects funded by Pupil Premium will be targeted and focussed on disadvantaged pupils but will not be exclusive for them alone.


Pupil Premium funding is intended to create a level playing field for all learners regardless of disadvantage so that all may have the same opportunities to attain equally.
