The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers. These include pupils who have been entitled to free school meals at any point in the past six years, those looked after by the Local Authority and the children of armed service personnel.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used and the impact.
