Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is money delegated from the central Government to schools, based on a number of measures.  These measures include:

  • Children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM).
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
  • Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces.

In 2017/18 the level of premium received per pupil equates to £1300. The DFE offer the following guidance on how the Pupil Premium is to be spent:

‘In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility…[Schools] will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families.’
