Pupil  Premium
What is Pupil Premium?

Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.

The Government believe that this is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

At West Bretton, we are committed to giving all pupils the very best chance to meet their full potential, regardless of ability and background. Pupil Premium funding plays a huge part in ensuring this happens and that gaps between groups are narrowed.


How is it spent?

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Who is it for?

Schools are provided with pupil premium for:

Free School Meals (FSM):

Schools are funded a Pupil Premium amount of £1,345 per pupil (2020-21) for those whose families have registered for FSM. This includes any child who has been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years.

Post/Looked After Children:

Children who have been looked after under local authority care for more than one day get a yearly amount. These children are awarded a premium of £2,345.

Service children are children and young families where one or more parent is currently in the British Armed Forces of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. These children are awarded a premium of £310.
