Pupil Premium (Funding For Disadvantaged Pupils) and Y7 Catchup

Pupil Premium (Funding for Disadvantaged Pupils)

The Pupil Premium (Funding for Disadvantaged Pupils) is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children and to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children.  The three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium are children who are entitled to free school meals (FSM); those children looked after by the local authority (CLA); children with parents in the armed forces.

The government has stated that it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent although schools are required to give an outline of how the money is allocated and how it will benefit those specific groups of children in particular.
