Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium


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.

Financial year 2016 to 2017

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for eligible pupils:

£1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6 registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years;

£1,900 for each pupil having left local-authority care because of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

£300 for pupils from service families in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.

From the 1 September 2016, schools maintained by the local authority must publish their strategy for the school’s use of the pupil premium on their websites.
