Pupil Premium

                                          Pupil Premium Grant 2015-16
                                                      Proposed actions
What is Pupil Premium?

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 continuously for more than six
months, and children of service personnel.

Why has it been introduced?
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 peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
