Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium at Sefton Park


Pupil Premium is extra money paid direct to schools for each child who is eligible for free school meals (FSM).


The government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for FSM and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.


The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).  Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after by the Local Authority continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.


Per pupil funding is £1,345 per child for the 2021/22 academic year. Sefton Park Schools should be awarded funding of £45,730 over this academic year.
