What is the Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is an amount of money allocated to the most disadvantaged children in order to close the attainment gap.

The government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is in addition to main school funding, is the best way to address the inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM), looked after children & service children and other pupils.  Three categories of pupils are eligible:

 

  • Pupils recorded as ‘ever 6 FSM’ (pupils who are eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years)

  • Looked after children

  • Children of Service personnel

 

Pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium need to be aged 4 and over, in year groups to year 11 in a maintained school. The proportion of children eligible at Hollywell Primary School is currently 17%.

 

Pupil Premium is allocated straight to our school and it is clearly identifiable. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they feel is appropriate. The government thinks that schools are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils within their responsibility. However all schools will be held accountable for how they have used additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and in care. The schools must report and publicise annually how the money has been spent and what the impact has been made on the achievements of the pupils.
