What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools with pupils on roll in January 2015 that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. Each of these pupils will attract £1,300. Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. Parents/carers are urged to register their child as eligible for FSM so that each school receives their maximum Pupil Premium entitlement.
Pupil Premium is also provided for children in care who have been looked after continuously for at least six months and for children of parents in the armed services, who face particular challenges.
The amount for children eligible for FSM is £1,300 per child and for Service children is £300.
