Pupil Premium

PURPOSE

Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:

  • generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school
  • often do not perform as well as their peers

The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.

ELIGIBILITY AND FUNDING

Schools get pupil premium funding based on the number of eligible pupils they have from the following groups.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS

Schools get £1,345 for every primary age pupil and £955 for every secondary age pupil who claims free school meals or who has claimed free school meals in the last 6 years.

LOOKED-AFTER AND PREVIOUSLY LOOKED-AFTER CHILDREN

Schools get £2,345 for every pupil who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order.

Local authorities get the same amount for each child they are looking after; they must work with the school to decide how the money is used to support the child’s personal education plan.

SERVICE PREMIUM

The service premium is not part of the pupil premium as the rules to attract the service premium are different.

Schools get £310 for every pupil with a parent who:

  • is serving in HM Forces
  • has retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence

This funding is to help with pastoral support.

ACADEMICALLY ABLE PUPILS

The pupil premium is not based on ability.

Research shows that the most academically able pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds are most at risk of under-performing. Schools should focus on these pupils just as much as pupils with low results.
