Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium funding allocation includes pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years and is known as the “Ever 6 FSM measure.”

Schools are able to use the Pupil Premium flexibly in order to narrow the attainment and achievement gap between these groups of socially disadvantaged children and the population as a whole.  To ensure accountability, there is a requirement to publish details of how the funding is being used.
