Pupil Premium Statement

Pupil Premium 2016/2017

(source of information: DfE website)


The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011, in addition to main school funding. The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to narrow the attainment gap between pupils from identified groups (see below) and their peers, ensuring that additional funding to tackle disadvantage reaches pupils who need it the most.

In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’), children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel.

The level of the premium in 2016/17 is:

  • £935 per pupil for pupils eligible for free school meals (Ever 6 FSM)
  • up to £1900 for pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for six months (the amount the school receives for Children Looked After depends on the Virtual School allocation in each area)
  • £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of one of the following reasons: adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order.
  • Children of service personnel were allocated £300.

Amount of Funding Received

In 2016/17 Norden High School & Sports College has been allocated a total of £203,835. We have received this money in addition to the main school funding.
