Pupil Premium Funding
What is Pupil Premium Funding?
The Pupil Premium is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds, which research shows underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided in order to support these pupils in reaching their potential.
The pupil premium grant was created to provide funding for three key areas:
- Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers.
- Supporting children and young people with parents in the armed forces.
- Providing funding for looked-after children (LAC).
How much money does the school get?
In the academic year 2021-22, the funding is £1345 per pupil or £2345 for a Looked After Child or children that have ceased to be looked after by a Local Authority in England because of adoption, a special order, child arrangement order or a residence order. Please see our 'Pupil Premium Strategy Statement,' which outlines how much funding we will receive this year and how we plan to spend it.
