Pupil Premium & Year 7 catch-up funding

The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11.

  • Every child currently registered as eligible for free school meals
  • 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 are receiving:
  • £935 per pupil of secondary-school age
  • £1,900 per pupil for looked-after children who: 
  • Have been looked after for 1 day or more 
  • Are adopted
  • Leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or a Residence Order

School accountability for the pupil premium

The pupil premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.
Ofsted inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.
