Pupil Premium Allocation

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 to tackle educational inequality by raising achievement and improving outcomes for children from low-income families who are eligible for free school meals; also pupils in care and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. The additional funding is made available to schools to help them narrow the attainment gap that still exists between pupils from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds.
