Since 2011, the Government has provided additional funds to school called the Pupil Premium. The Pupil Premium is given to publicly funded schools to raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between them and their peers.

Funding for 2020 – 2021

Pupil Premium pupils (PP) are identified as those who have received free school meals (FSM) within the previous six years.

  • £955 for secondary-aged pupils (PP)

Additional funding is available for pupils in the care of the Local Authority (LAC). Identified as those who have been looked after for 1 day or more, or have been adopted from care since 30 December 2005.

  • £2,345 for each LAC

Schools also receive funds for pupils who have a parent who is currently serving in HM Forces, or has retired on a pension from the MoD.

  • £310 for each HM Forces

The Year 7 catch-up fund is allocated to schools based on the number of students who failed to reach the expected standard in English & Maths KS2 SATs.
