Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is funding that is based on the number of pupils receiving free school meals.

This funding is given to schools from the government in order to raise standards further in education. It is in addition to mainstream funding. The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to target support to "narrow the gap" between free school meal children and other groups.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
