The Pupil Premium is grant funding and is in addition to the School’s Delegated Budget. It is allocated to schools for children; who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), service families and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Pupil Premium Funding is used to raise attainment, promote social skills, independent learning and positive behaviour in order to increase pupil progress and well-being.
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable within the budget. It is for the school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, but schools will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support eligible pupils and families. The school monitors the achievement of pupils covered by Pupil Premium and measures are included in the school performance tables that capture the achievement of the pupils and compares it with the performance of other pupils.
