Pupil and Recovery Premiums - information overview, strategy plan and review
What is 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.
Schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,455 for pupils in reception year to year 6
Schools will also receive £2,530 for each pupil identified in the Autumn school census as having left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:
- a special guardianship order
- a child arrangements order
- a residence order
If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £2,530 rate.
Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £2, 530 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils is managed by the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child.
In February 2021, the government announced the recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery from COVID 19.
The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2023 to 2024 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.
Broomhaugh First will receive £2000 recovery premium in the 2023- 2024 academic year.
