Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools 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 will receive funding based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years and for children who are looked after or adopted (LAC).
