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.
Funding for financial year 2022-2023
In the 2022-2023 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,345 for pupils in reception to year 6
Schools will receive £2,345 for any pupil:
- identified in the January school census or the alternative provision census as having left local authority care as a result of:
- a special guardianship order
- a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)
- who has been in local authority care for 1 day or more
- recorded as both eligible for FSM in the last 6 years and as being looked after (or as having left local authority care)
For pupils who attract the £2,345 rate, the virtual school head of the local authority that looks after the pupil will manage the funding.
There is also an additional allowance of £310 per child for those children from service families. This is to provide mainly pastoral support for service children rather than raising attainment and accelerating progress within disadvantaged groups.
The Headteacher and Governors have agreed a policy for Pupil Premium to guide the use of funds and to ensure that it represents value for money.
The Headteacher and Leadership Team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put into place for Pupil Premium and report to the Governing Body on its progress and impact.
