Pupil Premium Guide

Government Guidance

Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.

Schools do not have to spend pupil premium so it solely benefits pupils. They can use it wherever they identify the greatest need. For example, they might spend it on pupils who do not get free school meals but:

  • have or have had a social worker
  • act as a carer

Using pupil premium funding to improve teaching quality is the most effective way to improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils. By doing so, schools will inevitably benefit non-eligible pupils as well.

Chesswood Junior School Pupil Premium Compliance

Local authority-maintained schools must publish a pupil premium statement on their school’s website. The purpose of this is to enable parents and governors to understand how we are using the pupil premium funding; setting out our strategy to improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils.

Education Endowment Foundation

 We are a charity with a moral imperative – to support teachers and senior leaders to raise attainment and close the disadvantage gap – which roots its response to this educational challenge in the best available evidence.

We do this by:

  • summarising the best available evidence in plain language for busy, time-poor teachers and senior leaders. Our Teaching and Learning Toolkit is now used by 70% of secondary schools.
  • generating new evidence of ​‘what works’ to improve teaching and learning, funding independent evaluations of high-potential projects. We’ve tested over 190 high-potential programmes with over 1.3 million children and young people.
  • supporting teachers and senior leaders across the country in using this evidence to achieve the maximum possible benefit for young people. We work in partnership with a network of 37 Research Schools across the country.
