Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to the main school funding, is to be used to address inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those children who are not. This includes any child who has been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years. Its aim is to reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally.
DfE Guidance states:
‘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 pupils”.
