Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?


The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England and is paid to schools according to the number of pupils: 

  • who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years; and
  • who have been in care for 6 months or longer.
  • whose families work in the Armed Services.

 The Pupil Premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need, and Head teachers and school governing bodies are accountable for the impact of Pupil Premium funding. This is monitored through:

  • performance tables, which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers ; and
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, where inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium.

 The Governor responsible for monitoring Pupil Premium expenditure is Mrs Margaret Ingham.
