Allocation of Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an amount of money allocated by the government to schools for:

  • Children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been previously
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
  • Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces

The DFE offer the following guidance on how the Pupil Premium is to be spent: ‘In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility…[Schools] will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families.’

The purpose of the information on this page is to inform parents, carers and governors how much Pupil Premium will be received by the school for this academic year, how it will be spent and the impact previous spending has had on disadvantaged pupils’ achievement.
