What is Pupil Premium?


Pupil Premium is additional money allocated to schools by the government to enable schools to support pupils who may be disadvantaged and to raise their achievement. It is derived from those children who are eligible and in receipt of Free School Meals - (FSM) and those children who are Looked After Children – (LAC). The figure is calculated for the past 6 years for all children who have ever been granted free school meals.

Pupil Premium is used to support disadvantaged and vulnerable children but schools are free to decide how best to direct this funding, narrowing the gap between higher and lower achievers.
