Pupil Premium

The Pupil premium is an additional funding paid to schools for identified groups of pupils and aims:

  • To reduce the attainment gap between highest and lowest attaining pupils nationally; raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.
  • To provide additional resources to schools to support the progress of pupils
  • To support looked after children (LAC)

There are four groups of pupils who are eligible for grant funding:

  1. Children receiving Free School Meals (FSM) at any point during the past six years
  2. Currently looked after children (LAC)
  3. Children who are adopted from care or leave care on order.
  4. Children whose parents are Armed Forces Service Personnel
