The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011. The level of pupil premium set for 2016-17 remains the same as the previous year at £ 1,320 per pupil for pupils eligible for free school meals and pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 Free School Meals). The level of pupil premium set for 2016-17 for Looked After Children (LAC) or Post LAC remains £1,900.  

At Overdale the pupil premium funding is carefully targeted at the designated children and we are able to identify how the money has been spent and how it will be used in the future.

We aim to continue to seek ways to encourage parents and carers to apply for free school meals where pride, stigma or changing circumstances act as barriers to its take-up.

Apply online at or pick up a form from the school office.

Details of the last full years spend is detailed below.
