Pupil premium is a funding stream allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils they have who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). The amount received by the school depends on the number of children whose parents register to receive FSM. In addition to this, Pupil Premium funding also covers any forces and/or looked after children.
The government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is received by the school in addition to other funding, is the best way to address some of the inequalities in the educational results achieved by different groups of pupils.
