Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011. It is intended to address the underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who are in most need of it.

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 pupils in reception year to year 6
  • £955 for pupils in year 7 to year 11


In addition, schools will receive up to £2,345, for each Looked After Child, who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English Local Authority. 

Schools will also receive £2,345 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of one of the following:

  •  adoption
  •  a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

The Service Child Premium was also introduced in April 2011. Unlike the main deprivation premium, which is intended to raise attainment, the intention is to provide additional (mainly pastoral) support. It is currently paid at the rate of £310 per eligible pupil.
