What is the pupil premium?
The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. It is targeted at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as pupils from less deprived families. From September 2017, the premium will be worth £1,320 and goes to pupils who at any point in the past 6 years have been in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM); £1,900 goes to any pupil who has been in local authority care or who has been adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 or who has left care under a Special Guardianship, Residence or Child Arrangements Order.
How the Pupil Premium is spent is monitored closely with all schools accountable for the impact of the money spent.
