What is the Pupil Premium?

Disadvantaged Pupils

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The Pupil Premium Grant is a significant amount of money for many schools, with schools attracting £1900 per 'looked-after child' or £1320 per child who has been able to access free school meals within the last 6 years. 

Pupils from Service Families

Pupils from Service families also attract Pupil Premium funding at the level of £300 per child.  This money is to be used to support pupils’ pastoral needs, for example during times of parental deployment or during a move to, or away from, our school.

The Catch-up Premium – Planned Expenditure for the 20/21 Academic Year Context

The government has announced funding to support children and young people to catch up from the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. Schools’ allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in primary school.

As the catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant will only be available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. Our school has taken into account the research and guidance provided by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) in order to create the following action plan.

Accountability

The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:

  • the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium
  • the reports for parents that schools have to publish online
