The Pupil Premium is additional funding which is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). The Pupil Premium is aimed at addressing the current underlying inequalities which exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent peers.
The Pupil Premium also provides funding for children and young people who have been looked after for 1 day or more, been adopted from care on, or after, 30th December 2005 or left care under a special guardianship order or a residence order.
The Pupil Premium also provides funds for the children of service personnel, known as a Service Premium.
