Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium Statement 2020-2021

Introduction to the Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support particular groups of pupils who are known to be at risk of underachievement and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for pupils in Years R to 11 that are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or, who have been eligible for FSM in the past six years (Ever 6).

In the 2020 to 2021 financial year, schools received £1,320 for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.

  • £1,320 for primary-aged pupils.

Schools will also receive £2,300 for each looked-after pupil who:

  • has been looked after for 1 day or more
  • was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under
  • a special guardianship order
  • a residence order.

More information is available on the Department for Education website.
