Pupil Premium

Introduction to the Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium (PP) is additional funding given to schools so that they can support particular groups of pupils who are known to be at risk of underachievement. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who have been eligible for free school meals in the past six years.

In 2013-14 the pupil premium funding was £900 per pupil. More information about the Pupil Premium is available on the Department for Education website: Pupil Premium Funding
