The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding from central government to support children who may be vulnerable to under-achievement. This additional funding is aimed at addressing the underlying inequalities which exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers. The amount received by each school is dependent on the number of children who meet the following criteria: those who are currently eligible for free school meals or have been eligible for free school meals over the last six years; those who are Looked After Children or children who were looked after immediately before being adopted after 30 December 2005; or were place on a special guardianship or residence order immediately after being looked after.
Schools are required to report on the progress of this group of children and to demonstrate how they are using the Pupil Premium funding and the impact it is having.
