PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding, in addition to main school funding, which schools receive according to the number of children in specific groups. Schools receive Pupil Premium funding for:
- children who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years (commonly known as the ‘Ever 6’ rule)
- children who are looked after i.e. they are in Local Authority Care
- children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who
- have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order
- children recorded as an Ever 4 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.
The government awards this funding to help raise achievement for these children. National data shows that as a group, children in these groups have consistently lower educational achievement than those who are not in these groups.
It is up to schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, but this funding should be used to support these children. All schools are required to publish, on their websites, what funding they have received and how the money is being used.
