Pupil Premium targets additional money at pupils from the most deprived background to help them achieve their full potential.
In 2012, Eligibility for the Pupil Premium was extended to pupils who had been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point on the last 6 years. As a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time, have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM.
Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying school budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment of the most vulnerable pupils.
Pupil Premium is also provided for children in care who have been looked after for more than six months, recognising that they need additional support to help them raise their educational achievement. It is also provided for children of parents in the armed services.
