Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium grant is funding to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in state-funded schools in England. It is up to school leaders to decide how to spend the pupil premium. This is because the Government believe that school leaders are best placed to assess their pupils’ needs and use funded to improve their attainment.

The following groups are eligible for pupil premium:

  • pupils who are recorded as eligible for free school meals, or have been recorded as eligible in the past 6 years, including eligible children of families who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF)
  • children looked after by local authorities, referred to as looked-after children
  • children previously looked after by a local authority or other state care, referred to as previously looked-after children
  • children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces – Service pupil premium


The pupil premium statement outlines how we have spent this additional income and impact this has had.
