Pupil Premium

The following groups are eligible for pupil premium:

  • pupils who are recorded as eligible for free school meals, or have been recorded as eligible in the past 6 years, including eligible children of families who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF)
  • children looked after by local authorities, referred to as looked-after children
  • children previously looked after by a local authority or other state care, referred to as previously looked-after children

All schools decide how they spend pupil Premium, since they are best placed to assess and address what additional support should be made for pupils within their school. This will fall into one of the following 3 areas:

  • supporting the high-quality teaching, such as staff professional development (50%)
  • providing targeted academic support, such as tutoring, including through the National Tutoring Programme (25%)
  • tackling non-academic barriers to academic success, such as difficulties in attendance, behaviour and social and emotional wellbeing (25%)
