Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools and academies to:

  • raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
  • support children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.


It was first introduced in April 2011.  Since then the amount schools receive has increased.  Schools receive funding based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.

The Department for Education has clear expectations on how the Pupil Premium Grant may be spent:

  • For the purposes of the school i.e the educational benefit of pupils registered at the school.
  • For the benefit of other pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies.
  • on community facilities e.g services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose, for the benefit of the children at the school and their families, or people who live and work in the locality of the school.

Below is a breakdown of how we intend to use our pupil premium grant this academic year.
