Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The government believes that it is unacceptable for children’s success to be determined by their social circumstances and intends to raise levels of achievement for all disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between disadvantaged children and their peers.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. Schools can decide how it is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils within their responsibility.

When commenting on how successful schools use the Pupil Premium to narrow the attainment gap, the Department of Education said:

‘Evidence shows that the most effective schools achieve this through a combination of high quality teaching, strong leadership, a relevant and coherent curriculum, a culture of high expectations and targeted catch-up and enrichment activities.’
