Pupil Premium

Pupil premium money is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of children who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals or any child that has been registered for FSM in the past 6 years (known as “Ever 6 FSM”), whose parents serve in the Armed Forces and children who have been looked after in local authority care continuously for more than 6 months.


“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools… is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” (DfE Website)


At St Levan School, pupil premium funding helps children to flourish. We spend our pupil premium funding carefully to ensure that the additional funding has reached the pupils who need it most and that it has made a significant impact on their education and lives. We base our decision making on best practice and evidence as outlined by the Educational Endowment Foundation (EEF). For more information about the EEF visit:
