Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium is a stream of additional funding given to schools to help support children from financially disadvantaged families. 

Pupil Premium is generated by pupils falling into any of the categories below:

  • Those children who are currently in receipt of free school meals or who have been in receipt of free meals at any point in the last 6 years.
  • Those children who are in the care of the Local Authority.
  • Those children who are members of a service family.

    Children qualify for Pupil Premium if they are in receipt of free school meals or have been so in the last 6 years.  The introduction of free school meals for all children in Reception and Key Stage 1 in September 2014 does not automatically qualify a child for Pupil Premium.  It is still based on the income being received by the household.
