Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers.

Schools receive the funding (currently £1,320) for each child that is eligible for free school meals (FSM), is a looked after child (LAC), or a child whose parents are currently in the armed forces (AF). Pupil premium also covers those children who have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years (Ever6)
