Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.



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. This additional funding is given to schools to help support the following children:

  • children who have been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last 6 years
  • children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more (CLA)


Schools will also receive funding for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order


The Service Premium is designed to support children with parents serving in the regular British armed forces.  Pupils attract the premium if they meet the following criteria:

  • one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces
  • one of their parents served in the regular armed forces in the last 3 years
  • one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil is in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)


Funding is allocated in financial years and the total money received depends on figures provided via the pupil census. At St. John’s, Pupil Premium money is used in order to meet the identified needs of our children in a wide variety of ways according to the individual needs of each child, for example:


  • Free breakfast club
  • Small group work to create greater opportunities for learning
  • Funding for school uniform from the 'Essential' range, (one white and one red polo shirt and one sweatshirts or sweatcardis)
  • Funding towards the cost of residential trips, visits and swimming
  • Funding towards an enrichment activity such as music and sporting lessons
