What is The Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. The premium is designed to help each school boost the attainment of disadvantaged children and diminish the differnce between the highest and lowest achievers. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), a smaller amount allocated according to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for at least 1 day or more. The funding also includes pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.
