Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to publicly-funded schools in England with the aim of raising the attainment of disadvantaged children. Funding was allocated in respect of the following categories of pupils for 2019-20:  

• Disadvantaged pupils: children recorded in the school census as eligible for free school meals (FSMs) at any point in the last six years (referred to as Ever 6 FSM). £1,320 was allocated for each primary pupil; £935 was allocated for each such pupil in years 7 to 11.  

• Looked after and previously looked after children: £2,300 for each child currently looked after by an English local authority, or who left the care of a local authority in England or Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order, or a residence order (sometimes referred to as Pupil Premium Plus).  

• Service children: a Service Premium of £300 per eligible pupil paid in respect of children who have been recorded as having a parent serving in the regular armed forces in any school census in the last six years (referred to as Ever 6 service children). It is also paid in respect of children in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the War Pensions Scheme after their parent died or was injured while serving in the armed forces.  

In 2019-20, £2.41 billions of Pupil Premium funding was allocated in respect of around 2 million pupils. For 2020-21, the funding rates of the Pupil Premium and the Service Premium will increase in line with inflation. Local authority-maintained schools are required to publish a strategy for using Pupil Premium funding on their websites.
