Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is an additional government grant to schools which is targeted at improving the academic achievement of the following groups of learners:

  • Looked after Children - pupils/students who are in the care of the local authority for longer than 6 months
  • Children of parents serving in the Armed Forces
  • Children who qualify or who have qualified for Free School Meals at some point within the past 6 years (not the same as Universal Infant Free School Meals)
