Pupil Premium & Sports Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

In April 2011, the Government introduced the pupil premium and the service premium. This gave schools £625 million of extra funding to close attainment gaps for disadvantaged pupils and to assist with the pastoral needs of children with parents in the armed forces.

From April 2012, pupil premium funding was extended to children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years. For the 2015 to 2016 financial year, funding for the pupil premium has increased to £2.545 billion. Schools receive £1,320 per pupil of primary-school age and £1,900 per pupil who has been looked after for 1 day or more; has been adopted from care or has left care under a special guardianship order; or has a residence order or a child arrangements order.
