The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s a school-level grant that gives schools extra resources to help them meet challenges, including those arising from deprivation.
It’s allocated for schools to:
- improve the academic outcomes of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities
- close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers across the country
It is allocated to children who are on Free School Meals (FSM) or who have ever received FSM over the last 6 years, children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, children who are adopted or service children.
All schools can decide how best to spend this money but must report on and publicise annually how the money has been spent and what the impact has been on the achievement of the pupils.
You can find out more about the Pupil Premium on the Government website.
