The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Our parents' guide to the Pupil Premium is available by clicking here.
Each year, schools must produce, and then review, an action plan for how they will spend their Pupil Premium funding.

Pupil Premium Plus
Pupil Premium Plus is a payment made to schools to help raise the attainment of children in care.
From 1 April 2014 all children in care, who have been in care under the Adoption & Children Act 2002 and children who have left care under Special Guardianship or Residence Order, are eligible for Pupil Premium Plus.
In August 2020, the Government announced additional funding for schools to deliver Catch Up funding following the COVID-19 national lockdown measures. This amounted to £80 per pupil.
The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has provided early research evidence around projections for the impact of school closures during lockdown. The GLA’s strategic response to devising and implementing the Catch-Up programme fully takes these findings into account.
Effective home-learning during lockdown have been found to mitigate the impact. Whilst the GLA schools provided a standard and fluid home-learning offer for all pupils, there is an acknowledgement that a significant number of pupils have had a prolonged period without face-to-face teaching and learning.
This Action Plan reports how the Catch-Up premium money for 2020-21 was spent over the academic year and enable us to inform parents, carers and trustees of the impact it had on pupil achievement.
