Pupil Premium is additional funding from Government allocated to schools for children from low-income families who are eligible for Free School Meals (or who have been eligible at any point in the last six years) and for children in care who have been looked after continuously for at least six months. The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to help raise these pupils’ attainment and narrow gaps with their peers. Schools are able to use the allocation in any way they consider will best benefit their children who qualify for this funding. Schools are, however, held accountable as to how they use the Pupil Premium to support pupils from low-income families.
