What is the Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

The Premium will be allocated to schools alongside their main schools budget each year


The Government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the Pupil Premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:

the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers

the new Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular those who attract the Pupil Premium


In most cases the Pupil Premium is paid direct to schools, allocated to them for every pupil who receives free school meals. Schools decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

For pupils from low-income families in non-mainstream settings the local authority decides how to allocate the Pupil Premium. The authority must consult non-mainstream settings about how the Premium for these pupils should be used.

Local authorities are responsible for looked after children and make payments to schools and academies where an eligible looked after child is on roll.
