Pupil Premium Funding was introduced by the Government to enable schools to tackle inequalities between specific groups of children. The amount of Pupil Premium Funding allocated to a school is dependent upon the number of pupils eligible to receive Free School Meals (FSM) and Looked After Children (LAC). Pupil Premium Funding is also allocated for pupils who have parents currently serving in the Armed Forces. The number includes all those children who have been eligible in the last 6 years, known as “ever 6” children as well as those eligible this school year.
What is the purpose of the funding?
Pupil Premium Funding, which is in addition to main school funding, is used to enable schools close any academic gaps there may be between FSM, LAC and Forces children and their peers. Schools can choose how best to tackle these gaps and how best to utilise the Pupil Premium Funding they are allocated. Schools monitor the impact of the funding, comparing end of Key Stage 2 results for those eligible for funding and their peers.
