Pupil Premium

The government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is funded separately to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

Schools also receive funding for children who are looked after continuously for more than six months, and for children who have been adopted as well as children of service personnel.
