What is the Pupil Premium?

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, funding which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives for its pupils. It is targeted at pupils who are entitled to free school meals, have been entitled to free school meals in the previous 6 years, are in Local Authority Care for 1 day or more, were recently adopted from care, or who are the children of service personnel.
