Pupil Premium & Catch-Up Funding
About Pupil Premium
In April 2011, the Coalition Government introduced the pupil premium and the service premium.
This gave schools £625 million of extra funding to close attainment gaps for disadvantaged pupils and to assist with the pastoral needs of children with parents in the armed forces.
The intended purpose of Pupil Premium funding is to address inequality by giving every school and teacher the resources they need to help their most disadvantaged pupils, allowing them the freedom to respond appropriately to individual circumstances.

Literacy & Numeracy Catch Up Funding
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2).
