What is Pupil Premium Funding?
The pupil premium is a Government initiative that provides additional funding for the following groups of pupils;
· Disadvantaged pupils -Free School Meals ‘Ever 6’ - This includes all pupils entitled to Free School Meals (FSM), currently or at any time in the previous 6 years. National levels of attainment have been lower for FSM pupils and the purpose of funding is to reduce the gap.
· Service Family Pupils – This applies to pupils who have a parent serving in the armed forces currently or in the previous 3 years. The funding is not about deprivation, but about the potential social and emotional needs of service life impacting on pupils’ wellbeing and progress.
· Children in Care – This applies to children who are ‘looked after’ by the local authority and those who have been adopted.
