Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Schools are free to decide how to allocate funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils. Pupil premium funding is available to:

 Local authority maintained schools, including special schools and pupil referral units

 Voluntary sector alternative provision, with local authority agreement

 Special schools not maintained by the local authority

 Academies and free schools, including special and AP academies
