Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is a payment made to schools by the Government. It makes up part of the school’s funding, is received into our budget and is made available for use throughout the whole school. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.


Our Pupil Premium allocation for the academic year 2020 - 2021 is £52,110


How do we decide how to spend the Pupil Premium Grant?

In deciding how to use our Pupil Premium Grant, we draw upon the following sources:

  • Sutton Trust report: “The Pupil Premium: Next Steps” available here.
  • Education Endowment Foundation Teaching and Learning Toolkit, available here.
  • Research on disadvantaged pupils and the vocabulary gap, available here.
  • Our combined professional experience of what works best


Details of Pupil Premium spending at our school and the principals supporting this can be found below. If you have any questions about pupil premium funding at Thythorn Field please talk to Mr Smyton.
