Pupil Premium: The Facts

Pupil Premium is additional funding paid to schools in respect of their disadvantaged pupils (pupils who have been registered for free schools meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years or are looked after continuously by the local authority for more than six months or whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces ).  Schools receive this funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers.

The level of premium for secondary age pupils in 2020-21 is £935 per pupil.

Looked after children receive a slightly higher rate of funding called Pupil Premium Plus, which is £2,345 per pupil for 2020-21. This is to reflect the unique challenges they face at school where they often struggle to keep up with their peers.

Children who have parents in the armed forces are supported through the service child premium which for 2020-21 is £300 per pupil.
