Pupil Premium and Sports Premium

Pupil Premium Grant

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

2.  The government introduced a fund of £625 million in April 2011 to give schools £400 per year for children who:

  • were registered as eligible for free school meals
  • had been looked after for 6 months or longer

3.  From April 2012, pupil premium funding was extended to children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years. Schools will receive:

  • £1,320 per pupil of primary-school age
  • £935 per pupil of secondary-school age
  • £1,900 per pupil who:
    • has been looked after for 1 day or more
    • has been adopted from care
    • has left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangements order


School accountability for the pupil premium

1.  The pupil premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

2.  Ofsted inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

3.  The government also hold schools to account through performance tables, which include data on:

  • the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding
  • the progress made by these pupils
  • the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.


Funding for the PE and sport premium

1.  Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

2.  In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

3.  In most cases, the government determine how many pupils in school attract the funding using data from the January 2015 school census.
