Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is the name given to additional funding allocated to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is generally allocated to pupils who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) now or within the last 6 years, to children in the looked-after care system and to the children of service families. In 2015 - 2016 all state primary schools received £1,320 for each pupil eligible for FSM now or within the last 6 years, £1,900 for each looked after child and £300 for service children.
