Pupil Premium Funding

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Schools receive funding for children who have:

  • been entitled to receive free school meals at any point during the last six years
  • been in local authority care for 1 day or more
  • parents or carers in the Armed Forces
