Pupil Premium

Overview of Pupil Premium Funding

The Pupil Premium is a government initiative that was introduced in April 2011 to benefit pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. Each school is allocated funds to support the learning of pupils who are currently eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been eligible at any point over the last six years. Further funding is provided for pupils in care and for pupils whose parents have been in the services at any point over the last four years. Individual schools are left to decide how the Pupil Premium is best spent in the interests of their disadvantaged pupils.
