Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is additional funding, given to publicly funded schools so schools can extend their support to disadvantaged pupils [including pupils on Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years, Service Family pupils, pupils in authority care or adopted] in order to help close the attainment gap between these children and their peers.

Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential.
