What is Pupil Premium?
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their more advantaged peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Currently Pupil Premium equates to £1300 per child eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or forces’ children. ‘Looked after’ children also receive funding at a higher rate.
