PUPIL PREMIUM

WHAT IS PUPIL PREMIUM?

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012-13 individual schools were allocated this additional funding.  This funding is allocated for any pupils who have been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point within the last 6 years.  These are known as the ‘Ever 6 FSM’.

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 by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

ACCOUNTABILITY

The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:

  • the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers

  • the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium

  • the reports for parents that schools have to publish online
