The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11. The government introduced a fund of £625 million in April 2011 to give schools £400 per year for:
every child currently registered as eligible for free school meals and children who have been looked after for 6 months or longer.
From April 2012, pupil premium funding was also extended to:
all children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years.
In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, funding for the pupil premium increased to £2.5 billion. Schools now receive:
- £1,320 per pupil of primary-school age
