Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

The Government’s current measure of disadvantage is any child who is or has been eligible to Free School Meals in the past six years.  Evidence suggests that the average performance of disadvantaged children is below that of non-disadvantaged children and that progress is slower.  The Pupil Premium, introduced in April 2011, seeks to address these inequalities by providing schools with additional funding to  raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.
