Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, like special schools and pupil referral units.


Funding for 2021-22

In the 2021 to 2022 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,345 for primary-aged pupils (pupils in Reception to Year 6)

£2,345 may be available to the school for each pupil who was identified in the January school census or the alternative provision census as having left local authority care as a result of:

* adoption

* a special guardianship order

* a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)

* who has been in local authority care for 1 day or more

recorded as both eligible for FSM in the last 6 years and as being looked after (or as having left local authority care)


For pupils who attract the £2,345 rate, the virtual school head of the local authority that looks after the pupil will manage the funding.


Schools also receive £310 for children of service families.
