The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities of children that are disadvantaged and this funding reaches the pupils who need it the most.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for :
Children of statutory school age from low-income families who are known to be eligible for Free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings.
Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
Children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
