Pupil Premium Impact
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:
- £1,345 for pupils in reception year to year 6
Schools will also receive £2,345 for each pupil identified in the spring 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 £2,345 rate.
Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £2,345 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 the school year September 2020 – September 2021, pupil premium funding was £6228. Details of the expenditure and impact are below.
In the school year September 2021 – September 2022, pupil premium funding is expected to be £7035. Details of the planned expenditure and anticipated impact will be posted below no later than November 2021. A full review of the impact of the expenditure will be carried out no later than September 2022.
