What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government to provide additional funding to address the gap in educational attainment and economic wellbeing between pupils from low-income families or pupils in care compared to their peers.  Funding is received for children who have registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, children who have been in care for more than six months and children whose parents currently serve in the armed forces.
