The Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or background. Itís allocated to schools based on the number of children who come from low-income families Ė this is defined as those who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM). This is one of the current governmentís key education policies. Itís based on findings that show that, as a group, children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible.

Itís important to know that a pupil does not need to have a school dinner, but the parents / carers should check to see if they are entitled.

It also includes pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years; children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months; and children where a parent serves in the armed forces.

At around £1,000 per eligible pupil, this money is for schools to decide how to use in order to improve educational attainment of children from less privileged backgrounds. The pupil premium has the potential to have a great impact on the attainment, and future life chances, of pupils.
