Pupil Premium Strategy Document 2022-23
What is Pupil Premium (PP) Funding?
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.
Service pupil premium (SPP)
Service pupil premium is additional funding for schools, but it is not based on disadvantage. It has been combined into pupil premium payments to make it easier for schools to manage their spending.
Schools get £310 in 2021 to 2022 and £320 in 2022 to 2023 for every pupil with a parent who:
- is serving in HM Forces
- has retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence
Department for Education
