The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding from the government used to address systemic social inequalities.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years, for Looked After Children (LAC), adopted children (Ad), and for service families.
The DfE has given us the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as we see fit, based on our knowledge of our pupils’ needs: "It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium allocated to school is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility".

- To accelerate progress and close the gap in achievement of Pupil Premium children so that their progress compares favourably with non Pupil Premium children
- To continue to teach all pupils to at least a good standard, if not higher, according to their individual needs
