Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure

Pupil Premium

Since April 2012 all schools receive funding known as Pupil Premium, which is paid to schools in respect of each child that is looked after, a service child or a child who is in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM). Schools are held accountable for how they spend this additional funding to ensure that it benefits children’s progress and attainment.

To ensure that parents and others are fully aware of the attainment of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium, schools are required to assess and publish (online) the impact that this additional funding has had on these children. The information should include:

  • The level of pupil premium received by the school in the current academic year and levels of funding received in previous academic years.
  • How the school has spent the pupil premium and why it has decided to spend it in the way it has.
  • Any differences made to the learning and progress of pupils eligible for the pupil premium as shown by performance data and evidence.
