What is it?

The Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

Schools also receive additional funding for children who are looked after (CLA) for 1 day or more has been adopted from care has left care under:

  • a special guardianship order
  • a residence order
  • a child arrangement order

 

Why has it been introduced?

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium and the impact it is having.
