Premium Funding

Pupil Premium

What is it?

The pupil premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children registered for a free school meal (or those who have been registered in the last 6 years), children that have been in care and children whose parents work in the Armed Forces.

Why has it been introduced?

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 these children and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium.

The Pupil Premium reports below show how we plan to use this funding and shows the progress made by our Pupil Premium children.

Further details regarding the Pupil Premium can be found on the Government website: Pupil Premium Conditions of 2016-2017
