The pupil premium is additional funding that schools in England receive to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil premium is allocated for children who receive free school meals (FSM) and is intended to help close the gap in attainment between FSM and non-FSM students, as well as supporting the social and emotional well-being of our children. Pupil premium has also been extended to include children who had been eligible for FSMs at any point in the last 6 years.

Recovery Premium Funding

The recovery premium grant is part of the government’s package of funding to support pupils whose education has been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19).

It is a time-limited grant providing over £300m of additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year and £1bn across the 2022 to 2023 and 2023 to 2024 academic years.

It is focused on pupil premium eligible pupils and pupils in specialist settings such as special schools, special units and pupil referral units (PRUs). This is because of the additional impact of the pandemic on these students.

However, schools can use it to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting any pupil based on an assessment of individual need.
