Pupil Premium


  • The Government allocates extra funding, Pupil Premium, to all schools, to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers. As a group nationally, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM.
  • Pupil Premium is based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for FSM at the school at any point in the last 6 years.
  • Although schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium at their discretion they are accountable for its use.
  • Schools are required to publish online information about how they use the Premium and the impact of expenditure.
