What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Each year, this funding is deployed by school in a range of ways to support disadvantaged pupils and this is reviewed each September to identify the impact it has had.
The government outlines pupils in the following categories to be eligibile for pupil premium:
- ‘Ever 6 FSM’
- Looked after children
- Service children
It is the responsibility of the Principal and School Leaders to determine where to allocate the funding.
