The Pupil Premium
The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with learners who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ever 6 FSM), looked after children (LAC) or Army children. The additional funding is allocated to support schools to ‘narrow the gap’ between vulnerable learners and their peers.
Schools, headteachers and teachers will decide how to use the pupil premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual learners. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium allocation is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual learners within their responsibility.
