What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding that the government gives to schools for each pupil deemed to be disadvantaged. The money must be spent to support their education and it is for each individual school to determine how it is spent, schools are free to spend it as they wish to improve pupils’ attainment.
Who is eligible for the Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is allocated to pupils in school year groups from Reception to Year 11 from low income families who are registered for Free School Meals or who have been registered for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6’), together with children that have been in care continuously for 6 months or more.
