Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools by the government. The children who are eligible for this grant are those who are in receipt of free school meals (FSM) or who have been eligible in the last six years of their education (from September 2012).

It also includes any children who have parents in the Armed forces or students who are identified as being in foster care (looked after children). Each school has the freedom to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per pupil, is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.
