Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

Introduced in 2011, the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional government money given to publicly funded schools in England to help disadvantaged young people do well at school and narrow the gap, both in school and nationally, between them and their peers.

Research shows that students who are entitled to Pupil Premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, less family support, lack of confidence, and issues with attendance and punctuality.

The funding is allocated to schools for students from Reception to Year 11 who have registered for free school meals in the last six years, and young people who are in care or have parents in the Armed Forces.

The funding rates for the academic year 2023-24 are £1455 per pupil who is eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible in the past 6 years. £2530 per pupil for Pupils previously looked after by a local authority or other state care, and £335 per pupil for any pupil who has parents serving in the armed forces.

Schools are free to choose how to spend their Pupil Premium grant. This may include funding extra classroom support, maths and literacy catch-up sessions, educational trips, music lessons or a breakfast club, speech and language or family therapy, or learning resources.
