The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. From April 2012 this funding was extended to include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) per pupil rate for 2022-2023 is £1,385 per eligible pupil. The Government has set the premium for service children at £320 per eligible pupil. Schools receive £2,410 for every pupil who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order.
The school has extensive monitoring and support systems in place to ensure favourable outcomes for our most vulnerable pupils.
We use Pupil Premium funding to increase the provision of small focus group teaching and one to one tuition that takes place between 3 and 5 days each week by fully qualified teachers and teaching assistants. To ensure that we meet the needs of our most disadvantaged pupils, Pupil Premium funding is also used to target social and emotional skills group sessions.

The Pupil Premium allocation for Great Bookham School for the Financial Year 2022-2023 is expected to be £54,015.
