Pupil Premium Funding

What is it?

Schools receive a sum of money from the government known as the Pupil Premium. It is allocated to support the education of pupils who meet one or more of the following criteria:

Eligible pupils

Pupil Premium per pupil

Pupils in Year Groups 7 to 11 claiming Free School Meals now or in past 6 years.


Looked After Children (LAC)


Children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order


Service children

Pupils in Year Groups R to 11 recorded as Ever 4 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.


How does the School get the funding?

The Pupil Premium Funding is administered straight into the School’s budget.

It is important that you register your child’s entitlement to Free School Meals if you are eligible to do so. The additional funding the School receives can make a significant impact on your child’s progress.

Please also make the school aware if your child would qualify for the Service Premium or under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 as detailed above.

Please contact the School Office on 01724 705023 for details on how to do this.
