What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
Pupils eligible to receive this funding are in four groups:
- Those entitled to free school meals (FSM)
- Those who have been entitled to FSM during the last six years (Ever6)
- Children in care or looked after (CLA)
- Services children
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 and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Pupil Premium is also provided for children in care who have been looked after continuously for at least six months and for children of parents in the armed services, who face particular challenges.
