Pupil Premium Plus


The Pupil Premium Plus provides funding for the DfE policy to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap with their peers.

  • For the financial year 2019-2020, the basis of Pupil Premium Plus allocation to the Local Authority for Children in Our Care is calculated on a per-pupil from Years R to 11 basis: £2,300 per child.

  • This grant is outside the remit of this policy and parents or guardians of post-LAC children should inform schools, academies and education settings of this status so that it can be recorded on the School Census.
