Pupil Premium Funding
What is it?
The Pupil Premium was introduced to provide additional support for looked after children, those with parents serving in the Armed Forces and those eligible for free school meals. The extra funding is made available to schools to help them narrow the attainment gap that still exists between pupils from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds.
Why was it introduced?
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between disadvantaged pupils and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit they are required to publish online information about how they use the funding and what impact this has.
