Pupil Premium is additional funding that is made available to all schools in the country. The amount of funding a school receives is based on the number of children who are or have been in receipt of Free School Meals at any time in the last six years.
The Government believe that Pupil Premium is the best way to address the inequalities between families with differing incomes. Such circumstances can often lead to differing educational and social outcomes. It is allocated to schools with the intention of:
- Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers
- Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces
The PPG (pupil premium grant) for 2020-2021 is £1,320.00 per eligible pupil or £2,300 per LAC (looked after children). Service children have an allocation of £300.
Our Pupil Premium lead teacher is Mrs Methven and our Governor for Pupil Premium is Mrs Eyre. Both may be contacted via the school office.

At St Edward’s, the Governors use this additional funding in a wide variety of ways and the ‘Pupil Premium strategy’ is designed to inform all stakeholders how we intend to spend our money.

Our Pupil Premium Strategy will be reviewed in July 2022.
