Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools that was introduced by the Government in April 2011. Its purpose is to support schools in closing the attainment gap between their pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers.

In the 2020 to 2021 financial year, the school has received the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £955 for pupils in Year 7 to Year 11

Schools also receive £2,345 for each student identified in the Spring school Census having left local-authority care because of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangement order
  • a residence order

If a student has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left Local Authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £2,345 rate.

Students who have been in local-authority care for one day or more also attract £2,345 of Pupil Premium funding. Funding for these pupils is managed by The Virtual School Head (VSH) in Ealing.

How Much Does the School Receive?

During the financial year 2017/18 the school’s allocation was £446,463. In 2018/19 the school's allocation was £491,810. In 2019/2020 the school’s allocation was £407,725 and in 2020/21 the school’s allocation was £374,360.
