The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Information on the number of pupils funded by year is not available but the attached tables show the amounts of funding allocated.

Data which split the pupil premium into the primary and secondary phases of education is only available for the deprivation element of the premium. This is paid to schools for the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals (currently or in the previous six years). Information on deprivation pupil premium by primary and secondary year groups was first published in 2013/14.
