The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for the educational benefit for pupils in school in year groups from Nursery to Year 6. These children are from low income families who are registered for FSM, or who have been registered for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6’), together with children that have been in care continuously for 6 months or more. In addition the school also receives funding for children who have been adopted from care or left care or are subject to a residency order.
