Markington CE Primary Pupil Premium Strategy and Impact Review

Pupil Premium Funding:

Pupil premium is funding (in addition to main school 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.

The Pupil Premium is allocated directly to schools. It is for schools to decide how the funding will be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the pupils for whom they are responsible. 

Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when schools use a tiered approach (with a particular focus on teaching), targeting spending across 3 areas: teaching, targeted academic support, and wider approaches.

Pupil Premium Funding is allocated for:

  • Pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible in the past 6 years
  • Pupils who have been adopted from care or have left care
  • 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.

In 2023-24, the DfE will allocate PPG to schools the following amounts:
