Allocation 2022/2023

Pupil Premium Allocation 2022-2023

The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a specific grant allocated by the government which is based on the school census figures for pupils registered as being eligible for the funding.

The Secretary of State for Education lays down the following terms and conditions on which assistance is given in relation to the pupil premium grant (PPG) payable to schools and local authorities for the financial year beginning 1 April 2022.

PPG provides funding for two separate policies:

  • raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
  • supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

The PPG per-pupil rate for 2022 to 2023 is as follows:

Disadvantaged pupils         

Pupil premium per pupil

Pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible in the past 6 years (including eligible children of families with no recourse to public funds)


Children who are looked after by the local authority


Pupils who have been adopted from care or have left care


Service children

Service premium per pupil

  • parent is serving in HM Forces
  • parent has retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence



Funding paid to schools

School leaders are best placed to assess their pupils’ needs and use the funding to improve attainment, drawing on evidence of effective practice. Pupil premium is not a personal budget for individual pupils and schools are not required to spend all of the allocated grant on eligible pupils.

It is for school leaders to decide how to spend the pupil premium, within the requirements of the conditions of grant.

Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when used across 3 areas.

  1. High-quality teaching, such as staff professional development.
  2. Targeted academic support, such as tutoring.
  3. Wider strategies to address non-academic barriers to success in schools, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support.

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) recommend that schools particularly focus their pupil premium on supporting high-quality teaching.

The Trustees of The Cherry Tree Trust are committed to narrowing the educational gap for our vulnerable pupils. So that the Pupil Premium money is spent wisely, making maximum impact for the vulnerable pupils Trustees have reviewed the support that has been put in place using the Pupil Premium Funding. We know that our previous decisions have been beneficial to our vulnerable learners as data statistics show that;  

68% of Disadvantaged pupils achieved the expected standard compared to 71% of 'Other' pupils Nationally. Therefore, there is an achievement gap of 3%. National Disadvantaged is 51%. The performance of Disadvantaged pupils in school is similar or better than 'Other' pupils Nationally


From our Pupil Premium budget of £495,000, Recovery Premium funding £53,000 and School Led Tutoring budget £53,000 we have allocated fixed cost interventions for 2022 /23:
