The pupil premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and 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 have been looked after, have previously been looked after and for children of service personnel.
