The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools to:

  • raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
  • support children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.

Schools  receive funding based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (Ever6). In 2015 – 2016, the school will receive the following funding for the educational benefit of those eligible pupils registered at that school;

  • £1,320 for each eligible primary aged pupil.
  • £1,900 for each Looked After Child.
  • £300 for each Service Child.
