What is Pupil Premium?
In 2011 – 12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to school based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).
From 2012 – 13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
Nationally, the statistics show that students who are in receipt of FSM do less well than their peers. The aim of this money is to try and close that attainment gap.
