Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium: the facts

Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

The level of premium for 2016-17 was £1320 per primary pupil. From April 2014 children who were 'looked after' attracted a higher rate of funding than children from low-income families - the ‘Pupil Premium Plus’, which was £1,900 per pupil for 2016-17. This was to reflect the unique challenges they face at school where they often struggle to keep up with their peers at both primary and secondary level.  Children who have parents in the armed forces were supported through the service child premium which for 2016-17 was £300 per pupil.
