The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. The amount of this funding varies from school to school and is dependent on 3 factors: the number of children who are in the care of the local authority, the number of children who have an entitlement to a free meal and the number who have a parent(s) in the armed forces.
Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
