What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives for its pupils. It is targeted at students who are entitled to free school meals, have been entitled to free school meals in the previous 6 years, are in Local Authority Care for 1 day or more, were recently adopted from care, or who are the children of service personnel.
It aims to ensure that these pupils benefit from the same opportunities as other students. The amount each student receives ranges from £300 for pupils from service families to £1,900 for those who are in Local Authority care.
