Pupil Premium

The  pupil premium  is a government initiative that provides additional funding to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The personal circumstances of some children can have a detrimental impact on their achievement, pupil premium is used to support disadvantaged pupils and try to ensure they have the same life chances as their peers. 

Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have :


  • been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • been in care for 6 months or longer
  • have a parent in the armed forces
