Pupil Premium is funding that comes into schools in addition to main school funding. The Government believes that Pupil Premium is the best way to address current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. In allocating the Pupil Premium, it has also been recognised that looked-after children (LAC) and children with parents in the armed forces, face additional barriers which may affect them reaching their potential. These children also receive Pupil Premium. Individual schools decide how Pupil Premium is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils. Schools are required to publish information as to how Pupil Premium has been used to ensure awareness of the attainment of pupils covered by this funding.
School reviews its Pupil Premium strategy on an annual basis in line with the budget monitoring cycle.
