Pupil Premium Funding
The pupil premium is additional funding for schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. The funding is based on whether a child is eligible for free school meals.
The Department of Education will allocate the following amounts for 2020/21:
- £1,345 per pupil who have been recorded as being entitled to free school meals at any time from reception to Year 6. (Ever 6 FSM)
- £2,345 per pupil for Looked after children (LAC) defined in Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, a local authority
- £2,345 per pupil for children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
