Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is additional funding, given to publicly funded schools so schools can extend their support to disadvantaged pupils in order to help close the attainment gap between these children and their peers. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years.
