What is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is a Government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, which research shows, underachieve compared to their peers. The premium is provided to support these pupils in reaching national standards.
Free School Meals are used as an indicator for deprivation and a fixed amount of money, per pupil, is deployed to schools and must be used to ‘narrow the attainment gap’ for pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years, who are looked after by the local authority or have parents in the armed forces.
