Pupil Premium Grant Plan 2016-2017

DfE Guidance on Pupil Premium Funding

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Schools can make decisions about how to spend the Pupil Premium funding to ensure that there is a narrowing of the attainment gap.

The Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils:

  • pupils who qualify for free school meals, or have done at any time in the past six years (£1300 per child)
  • pupils who have a parent serving in the armed forces (£300 per child)
  • pupils who are in the care of, or provided with accommodation by an English local authority (LA) (looked after children LAC) (£1,900 per child)
  • pupils who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority before being adopted, or who left care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (Post LAC) (£1900 per child)

Schools are held accountable for the spending of these monies, and performance tables will capture the achievement of disadvantaged students covered by the Pupil Premium.
