What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is currently £1385 per pupil. It is allocated to schools based on the number of children who claim free school meals, or who have claimed free school meals in the last 6 years. Children in Local Authority care also receive additional funding called LAC Pupil Premium funding, which is a maximum of £2410 per pupil and service families (with a parent in the armed forces). Early Years and Foundation Stage Pupil Premium is £342.00 for each eligible pupil who takes up the full universal 15 hours of state funded education.
