Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil premium is a government initiative where the school is given extra funding for eligible pupils. The pupil premium grant is allocated to schools with the intention of:

  • raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
  • supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

The PPG (pupil premium grant) for 2021 – 2022 is £1,345.00 per eligible pupil or £2,345.00 per LAC (looked after children). Service children have an allocation of £310.

The grant may be spent in the following ways:

  • for the purposes of the academy; that is, for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
  • for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies
  • on community services whose provision furthers the benefit of pupils at the school

From academic year 2021 to 2022, schools must demonstrate how their spending decisions are informed by research evidence. Activities should include those that:

  • support the quality of teaching, such as staff professional development;
  • provide targeted academic support, such as tutoring; and
  • tackle non-academic barriers to success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support.
