Pupil Premium

The pupil premium funding, which is additional to main school funding, is a key way of narrowing the gap between Free School Meals (FSM) and Non-FSM students. The government has extended its reach to cover any child that has been registered for Free School Meals or a Child Looked After (CLA) within the past six years.

According to the DfE, schools have the freedom to spend the funding as they see fit based upon their knowledge of pupil needs – ‘Schools will decide how to use the Pupil Premium. As they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils.’

‘It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what educational provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.’
