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 2016-17, schools are receiving:
- £1,320 per pupil of primary-school age
- £935 per pupil of secondary-school age
- £1,900 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.
The grant may be spent in the following ways:
- For the purposes of the school i.e. for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school.
- For the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies.
- On community facilities e.g. services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated.
