Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement, those who have been eligible for FSM (Free School Meals) at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM), looked after children, those that have left local-authority care due to adoption, a special guardianship order or a child arrangements order and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
Pupil Premium monies should be used to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used. In addition Schools are required to publish information detailing the impact of funding with regards to data, reasons and evidence for allocation of spending.
Please see the attached documents which give further information on this allocation.
