Pupil Premium

•Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding.  The funding is provided to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM), looked after children and Forces children and their peers

•In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable

•It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM, looked after children and Forces pupils, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility

•Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils.  

•Schools are required by law to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.
