The pupil premium 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.
In the 2015 to 2016 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:
- £1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6
Using the pupil premium effectively
The Education Endowment Foundation has produced a teaching and learning toolkit to help teachers and schools effectively use the pupil premium to support disadvantaged pupils. Its families of schools toolkit helps teachers learn about effective practice from similar schools. We have taken some ideas from other schools and continue to renew and reflect on the best provision and best practice there is available in order to have the greatest impact.
