Pupil Premium: The Facts
The Pupil Premium is additional funding paid to schools in respect of their disadvantaged pupils (pupils who have been registered for free schools meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years or are looked after continuously by the local authority for more than six months or whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces ). Schools receive this funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers.
The level of premium for secondary age pupils in 2017-18 is £935 per pupil.
Children who are looked after will attract a higher rate of funding than children from low-income families - the ‘Pupil Premium Plus’, which is £1,900 per pupil for 2017-18. This is to reflect the unique challenges they face at school where they often struggle to keep up with their peers.
Children who have parents in the armed forces are supported through the service child premium which for 2017-18 will be set at £300 per pupil.
