The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
School will receive funding for pupils as follows:
- for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
- for having left local authority care as a result of a special guardianship order or child arrangement order
- for being in local authority care for 1 day or more.
