This is additional pupil funding given to schools to target pupils who are facing the greatest disadvantage. This includes children from low income families, looked after children and those with parents in the armed forces. Eligibility for Pupil Premium is also provided for pupils who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as the Ever6 Free school meals measure).
The level of Pupil Premium set for 2023 - 2024 by the government is £1,455 per pupil.
In addition, schools will also receive £2,530 for each looked-after pupil who has been looked after for 1 day or more, was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under a special guardianship order or a residence order. A Service Premium (£335) is available for children whose parents are currently or have served (in the last 3 years) in the Armed Forces.
