Pupil Premium funding is provided to schools by the Department for Education in addition to general funding received in the main school budget. Schools receive Pupil Premium funding based on the number of pupils who are eligible for free schools meals (FSM) currently or have been at any point during the last six years (‘Ever 6’).
A smaller amount of funding is available for pupils whose parents are in the armed forces.
Pupil Premium funding is also available for children who are in the care of the local authority – ‘Looked After’ children.
The Pupil Premium is intended to address inequalities between these groups of children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who are most in need.
