Guidance on the use of Pupil Premium Funding:

The DfE have provided information to schools on how they can use Pupil Premium Funding.  Click here to see their website.


What is Pupil Premium? 

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.

Why has it been introduced?

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers .  It ensures that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, they are required to publish online information about how the money has been used.
