Pupil premium is a government grant, paid to schools to support disadvantaged pupils to improve their educational outcomes. Information on how we spent the grant last year, the impact it had and our plans for this year can be seen in our Pupil Premium Strategy.
The recovery premium grant is part of the government’s package of funding to support pupils whose education has been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19).
It is a time-limited grant providing over £300m of additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year and £1bn across the 2022 to 2023 and 2023 to 2024 academic years.
It is focused on pupil premium eligible pupils, this is because of the additional impact of the pandemic on these students.
Information on how we are using this funding can be seen in our Pupil Premium Strategy.
