In February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery for the 2021-2022 academic year. The recovery premium funding is additional funding for eligible schools and is based on pupil premium eligibility. This funding is to provide further support to disadvantaged pupils.

This recovery premium is allocated using the same data as the pupil premium. This means the following pupils will attract recovery premium funding to schools:

  • pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • children looked after by local authorities and referred to as looked-after children (LAC)
  • post looked-after children (post-LAC)
  • pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • children looked after by local authorities and referred to as looked-after children (LAC)
  • post looked-after children (post-LAC)

School allocations are calculated on a per pupil basis and mainstream schools receive £145 for each eligible pupil. As the pupils who this funding applies to are pupil premium children, the allocation and spending of this funding is outlined within our Pupil Premium Strategy 2021-22 – please follow this link:
