Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium (PP) was introduced in April 2011. It is additional funding provided by the Government for eligible pupils, to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils. It is allocated to children from lower income families, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and for children from families that are in the Armed Forces. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.


From April 2015 schools, pre-schools and nurseries can also claim funding called Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) that supports children’s early learning and development.


How should schools use Pupil Premium?

Schools are free to choose how they allocate their Pupil Premium funding. However, it must be used to support disadvantaged pupils and raise attainment. From September 2012, the government required schools to publish online information about how they use the Pupil Premium. 

Please see the pupil premium strategy plan below for information on how we use our pupil premium funding at Deansbrook Infant School.
