Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Pupil premium funding is available to:

  • Schools maintained by the local authority, including:
    • Special schools, for children with special educational needs or disabilities
    • Pupil referral units (PRUs), for children who can’t go to a mainstream school
  • Academies and free schools, including:
    • Special academies, for children with special educational needs or disabilities
    • Alternative provision (AP) academies, for children who can’t go to a mainstream school
  • Voluntary-sector AP, with local authority agreement
  • Non-maintained special schools (NMSS), for children with special educational needs as approved by the Secretary of State for Education under section 342 of the Education Act 1992

Funding for Financial Year 2018 to 2019

DfE will allocate PPG to schools and local authorities (who must allocate for each FTE pupil on the January 2018 school census, at each school they maintain) the following amounts:

  • £1,320 per pupil for each Ever 6 FSM FTE pupil aged 4 and over in year groups reception to year 6, except where the pupil is allocated the LAC or post-LAC premium
