Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at narrowing the gap in attainment between certain disadvantaged groups of pupils and those who are more well off. In 2022-23 funding is calculated on the basis of:


  • £1,345 for each pupil who is either currently eligible or who has been eligible for free school meals in the past six years and
  • £2,345 for looked after children in care for more than six months or those who have ceased to be looked after e.g. because of adoption.


There is also a related Service Premium of £310 per child paid to schools for children of families in the armed services.


The funding is provided to schools, who then decide how best to spend this according to local needs.


For information regarding how Pupil Premium and Service Premium funding is spent at Watchfield Primary School, please see the document below.
