Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the Local Authority and the children of armed service personnel.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and the impact of the funding. Please click the document below to view our full report.


  • To narrow the achievement gap for disadvantaged children
  • To provide experiences that broaden horizons and raise aspirations
  • To facilitate resources to enhance social and emotional development

All members of staff and governors accept responsibility for socially disadvantaged pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs. Becket Primary School is committed to “narrowing the gap” between these vulnerable pupils and all pupils nationally and the pupil premium grant supports this work. We recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals and funding is allocated to support all pupils or group of pupils that the school recognises as being socially disadvantaged.

Reporting pupil premium

  • The head teacher is responsible for reporting to governors and the governors are responsible for reporting to parents.
  • In addition, middle leaders collect and analyse data about pupil premium cohorts and this is shared with the leadership team and used to set new targets and draw up Action Plans for meeting these targets.
