Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium Grant?


Schools are allocated additional funding to help support the learning of disadvantaged pupils. Disadvantaged pupils are identified by the Department for Education as pupils who are currently eligible for free school meals (FSM), or who have been eligible in the last six years; pupils who have been in the care of a local authority; pupils who have been adopted or have a residence order; and pupils who have a parent in the services.


The Pupil Premium Grant per pupil for 2021-22 is:


Disadvantaged pupils

Pupil premium per pupil

Pupils from YR to Year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals


Looked after children (LAC)


Children who have previously been looked after by a LA in England and Wales



Service children

Service premium per pupil

Pupils recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of a child pension from the MOD




The Department for Education does not specify how schools should use their Pupil Premium allocation, but we publish how we use the grant and the impact it has had on educational attainment in our Pupil Premium Strategy Document.
