What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Schools are allocated funding for children from low income families who were eligible for Free School Meals and also for children who have been looked after for more than six months.

From April 2012 the Pupil Premium was extended to include children who had been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years and those families with parents in the Armed Forces. The aim is to help raise achievement and improve outcomes for these pupils. 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 eligible for Free School Meals and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The targeted and strategic use of pupil premium funding supports us in achieving our vision of turning potential into success for all our learners regardless of their starting points.
