Pupil Premium

The aim of the government’s pupil premium is to raise achievement among disadvantaged pupils, closing the gap between them and their peers. The funding was introduced in April 2011 and is targeted at pupils aged 4-16, from low income families who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or who are Children Looked After (CLA). It is additional funding that will ensure disadvantaged pupils will benefit from the same educational opportunities as pupils from wealthier families.

  • To reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally
