Pupil Premium Strategy & Catch Up Funding

Pupil Premium Strategy 

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 with the aim of closing the achievement gap and the impact of economic deprivation on academic outcomes.

Pupil Premium funds are extra to the whole school budget; in order to enhance student learning and to tackle disadvantage.

Students eligible to receive this funding are in four groups:

  • Students entitled to free school meals (FSM),
  • Students that have been entitled to FSM during the last six years (Ever6),
  • Children in care or looked after (CLA),
  • Services children.

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
