What is the pupil premium?
The pupil premium is a government initiative in which additional funding is given to schools to help raise the attainment of low-income families; the intention of this being to close any gaps between them and their peers and to ensure that they have equal opportunities.
This funding is paid directly to the school and is dependent on the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals in the last six years or have been in care for at least 6 months; a lesser amount is given for students whose parents are in service.
