Pupil Premium is additional funding for children in specific circumstances with the aim of raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Schools must utilise this funding effectively for identified pupils and are accountable for Pupil Premium expenditure.
Academic Year 20-21
In the 2020 to 2021 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,345 for pupils in reception year to year 6
Schools will also receive £310 for children of Service Personnel and £2,345 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of one of the following:
- a special guardianship order
- a child arrangements order
- a residence order
If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £2,345 rate.
Children in Local Authority Care will also attract this rate.
