Pupil Premium 2016-17


The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support particular groups of pupils who are known to be at risk of underachievement and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for pupils, in Years R to 11, that are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been eligible for FSM in the past six years (Ever 6).

In the 2015 to 2016 financial year, schools received £1,320 for Primary aged children and £935 for secondary school aged children.

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year the following funding has been provided for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

•£1,320 for primary-aged pupils

•£935 for secondary-aged pupils

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each looked-after pupil who:

  • Were looked after by an English or welsh local authority immediately before being adopted
  • Or who left local authority care on a Special Guardianship Order
  • Or on a child arrangements order (previously known as a Residence Order.)

These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.

More information is available on the Department for Education website.
