Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium was introduced by the government in 2011-2012 as an additional contribution to main school funding in order for schools to:
"Address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most’" 
DfE April 2012
 
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are or have been eligible for free school meals (FSM), children who have been looked after from care, or children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
