Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils. The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible.


In 2022-23, schools will receive funding for the following groups of pupils:

  • Pupils who have been recorded as being eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years;
  • Pupils who are in the care of, or are provided accommodation by, a local authority;
  • Pupils who are no longer looked after by a local authority because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order, or a residence order


You can download our Pupil Premium allocation below and find out how this has been used at our school.


The Link Governor for Pupil Premium is Mrs H Wilson
