Every child has the right to benefit from social security. Governments must provide financial support and other benefits, to families in need of assistance.
Publicly funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. Schools get pupil premium funding based on the number of pupils they have from the following groups.
Free school meals
Schools get funding for pupils who claims free school meals, or who have claimed free school meals in the last 6 years.
Looked-after and previously looked-after children
Schools get funding for every pupil who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order.
The service premium is not part of the pupil premium as the rules to attract the service premium are different.
Schools get funding for every pupil with a parent who:
- is serving in HM Forces
- has retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence
This funding is to help with pastoral support.

School Sports Premium
The Government is giving extra funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Broomfield School received £17,708 for the year 2020/2021
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Your education should develop your mental and physical abilities to their fullest potential.
Catch up Premium
The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. School allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis. While schools can use their funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help pupils catch up on missed education.
The school has created an overview of the use of the catch-up premium which can be reviewed here.
