Pupil Premium Strategy


What is pupil premium funding?

The Secretary of State for Education lays down the following terms and conditions on which assistance is given in relation to the pupil premium grant (PPG) payable to schools and local authorities for the financial year beginning 1st April.  PPG provides funding for two policies:

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.

The pupil premium for 2023 to 2024 will include pupils recorded in the January 2023 school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) since May 2014, as well as those first known to be eligible in January 2023.

Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils in the following categories:

  • Who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) since the age of four in year groups reception to Year Six (£1,345)
  • Who have been continuously looked after for the past six months (£2,345 per child)
  • Who are adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 or who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order (post LAC) £2,345 per child.
