The pupil premium grant is funding provided to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. To be eligible parents must be receiving one of the following: 


  • Child Tax Credit with an annual taxable income of less than £16,190
  • Pension Guarantee Credit

The grant is allocated in line with the financial year, which begins in April and allocations are made based from the previous January census.

Funding for looked after children (LAC) is allocated to the virtual school who then work with the school to determine how it the money is spent.
