Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, as historical research and data shows that these pupils are more likely to underachieve compared to their less disadvantaged peers.

This additional funding (Pupil Premium) is provided in order to support these pupils in reaching their potential. In the past, schools received additional funding linked to the percentage of children entitled to fee school meals (FSM), and pupil premium replaces this funding. Pupil Premium funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children who are in care or adopted and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

The aim of the Pupil Premium funding is to ‘close the gap ‘between the achievement of disadvantaged pupils and that of non-disadvantaged.

The Government are continuing to allow schools to decide how this money is used to improve pupil achievement, but schools are accountable for ‘closing the gap’ and need to demonstrate that they have employed effective strategies using this funding.
