Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, like special schools and pupil referral units.

Funding for 2023 to 2024

In the 2023 to 2024 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,455 for primary-aged pupils
  • £1,035 for secondary-aged pupils

Schools also receive £2,530 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as being in local authority care or having left local authority care because of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order
