Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

First introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England.

It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.



The PP grant per pupil rates for financial year 2023-24 are set out below.

Pupils who are recorded as LAC/PLAC and FSM Ever 6 will attract the LAC/PLAC per pupil amount only. Eligible service children will attract the SPP rate in addition to any other PP grant eligibility rate.


Disadvantaged pupilsPP grant per pupil rate
Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as FSM Ever 6, including eligible NRPF pupils£1,455
Looked-after children (LAC)£2,530
Previously looked-after children (PLAC)£2,530



The Education Endowment Fund (EEF) Guide to the Pupil Premium aims to support schools in spending their Pupil Premium to maximise the benefit for their students.

The report recommends school take a tiered approach to Pupil Premium spending. Teaching should be the top priority, including professional development, training and support for early career teachers and recruitment and retention.

Targeted support for struggling pupils should also be a key component of an effective Pupil Premium strategy; as well as strategies that relate to non-academic factors, including improving attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support.
