The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding that the government gives to schools for each pupil on roll where they are deemed to be disadvantaged. The money must be spent on that pupil to support their education, but it is for the school to determine how it is spent.
The Pupil Premium funding is money allocated to schools based on the numbers of children in the school who are currently eligible for 'Free School Meals' or who have been eligible in the last six year (FSM/FSM Ever); children who are or who have been looked after (CLA); children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces.
The Pupil Premium funding that is received by the school annually is used in a variety of ways in order to improve attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to help overcome any barriers to learning.
