Pupil Premium Funding

What is Pupil Premium?

The Government identified a gap between the attainment of children receiving free school meals (and those in care) and their peers.  The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support these pupils to close the attainment gap between them. Pupil Premium was paid at a rate of £935 per eligible child in 2018-2019 (Free School Meals).  The amount will rise to £955 per eligible child in 2020-21.
