Pupil Premium and Catch up funding

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for all publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Funding for financial year 2016 to 2017

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, secondary schools received £935 for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals  at any point in the last 6 years.

Catch Up Funding

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium is additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2.

Funding for financial year 2016 to 2017

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools received £68 per eligible pupil for Year 7 Catch Up.

We identify pupils who need extra support from the year 7 catch-up premium using information provided by the primary schools, key stage 2 test results, and in-school assessments relating to:

  • mathematics;
  • reading;
  • grammar, punctuation and spelling.

Schools are expected to determine how best to use the funding, based on research and teacher knowledge of effective strategies.  These strategies may include:

  • individual tuition;
  • intensive small-group tuition;
  • external services and materials;
  • summer schools that help students catch up over a short period of time.
