What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly-funded schools in England to raise the attainment and achievement of disadvantaged pupils, and close the gap between them and their peers. It is the school's responsibility to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students in their care.

The school receives funding for students who fall into the following categories:

  • pupils registered as eligible for free school meals, or eligible at any point in the past six years (£935 per child)
  • pupils who are registered as a service child (£300 per child)
  • looked after children (LAC), or pupils who have been adopted from care (£1,900 per child)


In 2016, new performance measures for Progress 8 and Attainment 8 were introduced nationally.
