Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Funding

Financial year 2016 to 2017

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.

Children who have been in local-authority care for one day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils is managed by the virtual school head (VSH), in the local authority that looks after the child.

Service children who are in year 7 to year 11 who have received free school meals at any time in the last 6 years or are in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence are entitled to £300.

Funding allocations

In June 2016 the DfE published pupil premium allocation for the 2016 to 2017 financial year based on January 2016 school census data.
