Pupil Premium

What Is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium was introduced by the Government in 2011 and is additional funding given to schools to help them raise the achievement of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

The Government believes that schools should decide how the Pupil Premium is allocated and spent, since it is felt that they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. Schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium.

​Since announcing the Pupil Premium, the Government has extended its reach to cover any child that has been registered for FSM in the past six years.  This is known as the ‘Ever 6’ model.
