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. In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools will receive funding of £1,320 for each child in Reception to Year 6 registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil identified as having left local-authority care. You can find out more about the Government's policy for Pupil Premium funding here.

The Pupil Premium Strategy review will take place in July 2017 when the level of funding has been allocated and data is available to assess this year's expenditure.
