Pupil Premium Grant Funding
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is a Government initiative that is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), children who have been ‘Looked After’ (LAC) by the Local Authority and children from a service family. The premium is provided to support these children in reaching their full potential and to narrow the attainment gap between themselves and their peers. Schools have the freedom to spend the premium in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment of those children who are entitled to the premium. The Pupil Premium Grant for 2023/24 is £1,445 for those eligible for FSM (free school meals), £2,530 for Looked After Children, £335 for children from a service family and Early Years Pupil Premium is £ 353.
From April 2015 schools have been able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium to support children’s development, learning and care. The Early Years Pupil Premium provides an extra 53 pence per hour for three and four year old children who meet the eligibility criteria. This means an extra £302 a year for each child taking up the full 570 hours funded entitlement to early education.

In February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery. The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. The one-off £302 million Recovery Premium for state primary and secondary schools, is building on the Pupil Premium, to further support pupils who need it most.
The recovery premium will be allocated using the same data as the pupil premium. This means the following pupils will attract recovery premium funding to schools:
The recovery premium will be paid in 4 payments to schools during the 2021 to 2022 academic year on the following schedule.

“Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest-hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge. We know that we have the professional knowledge and expertise in the education system to ensure that children and young people recover and get back on track. Returning to normal educational routines as quickly as possible will be critical to our national recovery, and the government intends for schools and colleges to fully open in September. The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.”
