Pupil Premium and Covid19 Catch up Premium
What is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium grant is funding to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in state-funded schools in England. In the financial year 2023-24, pupil premium spending will increase to almost £2.9 billion.
We want to support all schools to use the wealth of evidence of ‘what works’, evaluated by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), to use this funding effectively.
- Free School Meals
- Looked after or previously looked after children
- Service Premium
- TEACHING: spending is used for the training and professional development of the staff to improve the impact of teaching and learning for all pupils.
- ACADEMIC SUPPORT: spending it used to support the pupils succeeding at school and overcoming any barriers to their learning.
- WIDER APPROACHES: spending is used to support pupil development for non academic areas such as, breakfast and after school clubs, music lessons, educational trips and visits or speech and language therapy. It is also used for anything which may increase pupil confidence and self esteem, raise their aspirations and benefit non-eligible pupils.

- Promoting the education of looked-after children and previously looked-after children
For primary, middle, secondary and all through local authority-maintained schools, academies and free schools
- £80 for each pupil aged 4 and over recorded in Reception to Year Group 11 in the October 2019 school census.
The first payment (as set out below) is based on these provisional allocations. Two further payments will be paid into schools later in the academic year. For primary, middle, secondary and all through local authority-maintained schools, academies and free schools, these will be based on final allocations using pupil numbers from the October 2020 census for mainstream schools. The final allocations could be significantly different to the provisional allocations.
