Pupil Premium

The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11.

From April 2012, the government extended pupil premium funding to children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years.

School accountability for the pupil premium

The pupil premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

Ofsted inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

The government holds schools to account through performance tables, which include data on:

  • the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding
  • the progress made by these pupils
  • the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers

Please find below our evaluation of pupil premium funding for the current year budget.
