Introduction to Pupil Premium
Pupil Premium is a sum of money allocated to schools to provide additional support to students who are (or have been at some point in their schooling):
- Looked After Children
- Service Personnel Children
- Adopted children or those under special guardianship or previously been under a care order
- Free School Meals (FSM - Pupils currently on FSM)
- Ever 6 (Any pupil that has been on FSM at any point in the last 6 years)
Funding will be based on the information presented by the school from the school census in January.
Nationally, there is a gap between students who are identified as Pupil Premium and other students. The additional funding which is allocated to each school for Pupil Premium students is intended to give financial support for a range of intervention in order to reduce that gap in performance.
