What is Pupil Premium funding?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding, in addition to main school funding, which schools receive according to the number of children in specific groups.

Schools receive Pupil Premium funding for:

• all children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)

• all children who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years

• all children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months by someone other than their immediate family.

The government awards this funding to help raise attainment for these children. National data shows that as a group, 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.

A Service Premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This is designed to support the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

It is up to schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, but this funding should be used to support these children. All schools are required to publish, on their websites, what funding they have received and how the money is being used.
