Pupil Premium Spending

Ticehurst and Flimwell Church of England Primary School

What is Pupil Premium funding?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), an amount allocated according to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more. This is so that schools can support these particular groups of pupils who are known to be at risk of underachievement and to close the attainment gap between these groups and their peers. In 2013-14 schools received £953 for each eligible pupil and funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.

In 2014 schools received £1,300 per pupil and £1,900 per looked after child. More information is available on ther Department for Education website.


It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed

to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Since September 2012, this information must be published on school websites.
