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.

In the 2023 to 2024 financial year, schools will receive the following funding:

  • £1,455 for pupils in reception year to year 6 who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • £2,530 for pupils in reception year to year 6 who have left local-authority care because of adoption, special guardianship order, child arrangements order or a residence order
