Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

 

The government publish guidance about Pupil Premium on their website. The document explains that Pupil Premium Funding is extra funding from the government for publicly funded schools in England to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

 

Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:

  • generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school

  • often do not perform as well as their peers

 

The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.

 

Who is eligible for Pupil Premium Funding?

 

Schools get pupil premium funding:

  • for every primary age pupil in the school who is eligible for free school meals at the time information is collected, or has been eligible for free school meals at any point in the previous 6 years

OR

  • for every pupil in the school who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order

 

In addition there is also a Service premium. The service premium is not part of the pupil premium as the rules to attract the service premium are different. This funding is to help with pastoral support and is available for every pupil with a parent who:

  • is serving in HM Forces

OR

  • has retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence

 

How should the premium be used?

 

It’s up to school leaders to decide how to spend the pupil premium. This is because school leaders are best-placed to assess their pupils’ needs and use funding to improve attainment. Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when schools use a tiered approach, targeting spending across the following 3 areas  - Teaching, Academic support and Wider approaches but focusing on teaching quality, investing in learning and development for teachers.
