Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium is extra money given to schools each year by the government

Q: What’s it for?
A: It helps raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, to close the gap between them and their peers. Read the policy on how we spend the Pupil Premium money

Q: How do you know which pupils are  disadvantaged?
A: Each child who has registered as eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years counts for Pupil Premium. (Apply for Free School Meals at the Northlincs Website)

Q: How much do they get?           
A: The pupils don’t get the money, but the school gets £1,300 extra funding for each primary aged child.


Q: Do any other children get pupil premium money?
A: Schools also receive £1,900 for each pupil who:
- has been looked after for 1 day or more
- has been adopted from care
- has left care under a special guardianship order
