What is Pupil Premium Funding?
Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement. The government believes that the additional funding is the best way to address inequalities between different groups of children, and that schools are best placed to decide what additional provision should be made.
Children who are eligible include:
- Pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years.
- Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and Children who have been Adopted from Care.
- Children of Armed Services Personnel.
All schools must publish their Pupil Premium Strategy Statement annually which outlines how the money has been spent and the impact it has had on the achievement of pupils. The Pupil Premium Strategy for 2021 – 2022 and 2022-2023 also include the COVID-19 Catch-up Premium.
