Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers. These include pupils who have been entitled to free school meals at any point in the past six years, those looked after by the Local Authority and the children of armed service personnel.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used and the impact.


Funding for financial year 2021/2022

     *   £1, 345  for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years.

(This will rise to £1,385 per pupil for 2022/2023)

     *   £310 for service premium children.

(This will rise to £320 per pupil for 2022/2023)

     *   £2, 345 for children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special       guardianship order, a child arrangement order or a residence order.

(This will rise to £2,410 per pupil for 2022/2023)



The Pupil Premium funding is used as follows:

  • Additional time with a teaching assistant in class, either individually or as part of a group, in order to provide support to make the expected progress in their learning;
  • Participation in intervention programmes out of class, organised by the SEN Intervention TA, e.g. spelling, reading, social skills;
  • To provide one-to-one tuition for some pupils;
  • To provide experiences and enrichment activities in order to broaden horizons, e.g. residential visits, theatre trips, music lessons;
  • Extra support to facilitate emotional development and build confidence and self-esteem;
  • Extra learning resources and training to support the delivery of intervention programmes.
  • Make available support, resources and digital equipment to ensure no child falls behind in learning because of time spent away from school due to lockdown restrictions as a consequence of the Covid pandemic.
  • develop parental engagement to support learning from home.

The progress and attainment for individual children is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential.
