Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional government grant for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Pupil Premium is allocated to pupils who are currently registered for free school meals (FSM), looked after children, children adopted from care and Service Forces children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

The aim of the Pupil Premium funding is to support eligible children who may be vulnerable to under-achievement and address any attainment gaps. As well as focusing upon academic endevours, it may also be appropriate to provide support to nuture their well-being and to provide these children with access to a variety of enriching experiences.
