What is Pupil Premium?


Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils, and this is called Pupil Premium.


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


  • Schools get pupil premium funding based on the number of pupils they have in January each year from the following groups.
    • Free school meals -  pupils who claims free school meals, or who has claimed free school meals in the last 6 years.
    • Looked-after and previously looked-after children (who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order).


Service premium

The service premium is not part of the pupil premium as the rules to attract the service premium are different. Schools get £300 for every pupil with a parent who is serving in HM Forces or whomhas retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence. This funding is to help with pastoral support. So please let us know if this applies to you.
