Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to support students on Free School Meals, Looked After Children and those children whose parents serve in the armed forces. From September 2012 schools must report how they have used the pupil premium and the impact it has had on pupil progress.

Pupil premium is spent within the context of the overall funding agreement.

Reasons for the Pupil Premium

 •Created to tackle ‘educational inequality’

 •Allocated to schools ‘in addition’ to their budget

 •Funding to tackle disadvantage, reaches the students that need it most

 •A good education is the key to improving life chances

Schools are encouraged by the Department for Education to use the money to ‘narrow the gap’ in attainment between students in receipt of Free School Meals or those who are ‘Looked After’ as nationally there is a disparity between their attainment at GCSE and their peers.
