Government funding

Government funds schools by following a formula.

The largest part of the formula is pupil-led. This depends on the number of pupils on roll. For 2021/22, the school receives £3,589 for each primary age pupil.

Social disadvantage drives other pupil-led formula factors:

  • deprivation, based on free-school meals
  • deprivation, based on home postcodes compared to an index of deprivation;
  • Looked after children, in the care of the local authority;
  • pupils with English as an additional language;
  • pupil mobility;
  • pupils with low prior attainment.

Similar size primary schools in Ealing with higher social disadvantage receive much more government funding. This is as much as £1 million more each year.

Other income streams and grants include:

  • pupils who have special education needs with an education, health and care plan (part funded through the formula plus additional top-up funding on an individual basis by need)
  • Pupil Premium grant for disadvantaged pupils
  • PE & Sport Premium grant
  • Catch-up Premium (post COVID, 1 year only)
  • Universal Free School Meals for all pupils in Reception, year 1 and year 2.
  • Nursery Education Grant, per pupil, for 15 hours or 30 hours a week.
