Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is an allocation of money that is given to schools to specifically assist children who fall into at least one of the following groups:

  • They are currently eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • They have been eligible within the last 6 years for FSM (Ever 6)
  • They have been identified as a looked after child (LAC)


The money is specifically designed to support activities that will raise the achievement level and the emotional and social well-being of the students in these groups who have previously been identified as being disadvantaged through economic hardship.

The Government allows Bexleyheath Academy (as with other educational establishments who receive this grant) to decide how best to utilise the funding to support the progress of the students who are entitled to the funding and the intervention and support we provide is outlined below.
