The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that targets additional funds to raising the attainment of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. Research shows that these pupils do less well than pupils from more affluent backgrounds and the additional funding is being allocated in order to enable schools to provide additional support and resources for these pupils. The aim is to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and non-disadvantaged pupils.
The government have used free school meals entitlement as an indicator of disadvantage and pupils are entitled to Pupil Premium funding if they have been entitled to free school meals at any point in the last six years.
