Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium Spend- Information for Parents

The pupil premium – link to DfE Website - is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
  • registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • been in care for 6 months or longer


Headteachers and school governing bodies are accountable for the impact of pupil premium funding in the following ways:
  • performance tables, which show the learning and progress of disadvantaged pupils as shown by outcomes data
  • requiring schools to publish details online each year the level of pupil premium funding received by the school
  • how leaders and governors have spent the pupil premium, the rationale for this spending and the impact it is having on pupil achievement
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, where inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium
