What is The Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
Schools get an amount of money for every primary age pupil who claims free school meals, or who has claimed free school meals in the last 6 years.
From April 2020 the new rates will be:
- £1,345 per primary-aged pupil
Schools get an amount of money for every pupil who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order.
From April 2020, the new rate will be £2,345 per eligible pupil.
