What is Pupil Premium?

Publicly-funded schools in England receive extra funding from the government to help improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds may face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school.

The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress. Schools receive pupil premium funding based on the number of pupils they have in January each year from the following groups:

  • Free School Meals (registered now or within the last 6 years)

  • Looked-after and previously looked-after children

  • Service families

If you think you may be eligible for Pupil Premium, please go to Lancashire Free School Meals  for more information and to apply online.
