Pupil Premium was first introduced by the Government in 2011. It is a sum of money awarded to schools to help improve the outcomes for disadvantaged children.
For children from Reception to Year 6 who are, or have ever been, entitled to free school meals based on family income, schools receive £1320 per pupil (set to increase by £25 per child in April 2020)
For children in care, schools receive £2300. (Set to increase by £45 per child in April 2020)
For children from Service Families, schools receive £300 per child (set to increase by £10 per child in April)
Schools can decide how to spend this money and through careful planning it can help to improve the outcomes for all children in school.
Our strategy document identifies what we see as the priorities in helping our children achieve great things and good outcomes at the end of the different key stages.
