Pupil Premium Funding

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.


Who is the Pupil Premium for?

The Pupil Premium is primarily aimed at Reception to Year 11 pupils who are from low-income families and are eligible for Free School Meals [FSM]. The category now includes any child that has been registered for Free School Meals in the past 6 years [known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’]. The funding also covers children in care who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months. A service premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are serving in the armed forces.


How much is the Pupil Premium? 

Currently the premium is £1300 per child eligible for FSM and per child identified as ‘Ever 6 FSM’. £1900 per child who is looked after or is cared for under specific court orders such as special guardianship and £300 per child of a service family.

At Bowness-on-Solway Primary School we currently do not publish details about our PP spend on the website as to do so would identify individual pupils or families.  Details of spend are available in school.
