What is the pupil premium?
The pupil premium is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, which research shows underachieve compared to their peers.
The premium is a fixed sum of money provided to enable schools to support these pupils to reach their potential.
The Government have used the number of children within a school who are, or have previously been, registered for free school meals as the main indicator of how much premium should be paid. It is up to the school governors and headteacher to decide how this money can be most effectively spent.
