What is it? The Pupil Premium gives schools additional funding to raise the achievement of ‘disadvantaged’ pupils from reception to Year 11. The aim is simple: to ensure that at the end of each key stage (Year 2, 6 and 11) children eligible for this funding have achieved at least as well as their peers. The government refers to this as ‘closing the gap’.
Who is eligible for it? Every child currently registered for free school meals, looked-after children, and the children of parents who serve in the armed forces.
