Pupil Premium Allocation

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.

Funding for 2019 to 2020

In the 2019 to 2020 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

£1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6

Schools will also receive £2,300 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left authority care because of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

Headteachers and school leaders can decide how to spend the funding. Funding for these pupils is managed by the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child.
