Grant Spending

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is specific, additional funding that the government provides to schools to support the education of pupils who are eligible for free school meals, are looked after children or whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

The level of funding and the eligibility criteria change each financial year and the Department for Education has published details on its website here. Schools decide how to spend this money.

At Benton Park Primary School the Finance and Staffing Committee and Curriculum and Performance Committee have responsibility for making these decisions and monitoring their impact, alongside the Senior Leadership Team.

The pupil premium strategy below explains how we plan to spend Pupil Premium funding and its intended impact.

Covid recovery strategy (legacy)
