Pupil Premium and Catch-Up

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is a government initiative designed to target resources to those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background.  Specifically, the Pupil Premium money is for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever6) or        those children who have been looked after continuously for at least 6 months (CLA).

2019-20 Policy Statement and Strategy



The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to        catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations.  While schools can use their funding in a way that suits    their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help pupils catch up on missed education.
