The Secretary of State for Education lays down the following terms and conditions on which assistance is given in relation to the Pupil Premium Grant payable to schools and local authorities for the financial year beginning 1 April 2018. The grant provides funding for two national policies:
- raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential.
- supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.
The Pupil Premium Grant provides schools with additional funding to be used to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11. Schools receive funding for every child currently registered as eligible for free school meals, children who have been looked after for 6 months or longer and service children. From April 2012, pupil premium funding was also extended to all children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years.
For 2018-19, schools are receiving:
- £1,320 per pupil of primary-school age
- £935 per pupil of secondary-school age
- £2,300 per pupil for looked-after children who have been looked after for 1 day or more, who are adopted, or who leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or a Residence Order.
- £300 per pupil for Service children.
