What is it?
Pupil Premium is additonal funding provided by the government to raise the achievement of ‘disadvantaged’ pupils. The aim is simple: to ensure that at the end of each key stage (Year 2, 6 and 11) children eligible for this funding have achieved at least as well as their peers. The government refers to this as ‘closing the gap’.
Who is eligible for it?
Every child currently registered for free school meals (or those who have received it at any point in the last six years), looked-after children, and the children of parents who serve in the armed forces.
What is it used for?
‘The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make.’ (Source: DfE). The additional funding allows the school to put into place provisions and resources which are designed to reduce the achievement gap.
