What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is a specific government policy targeted on disadvantaged students – giving schools extra funding to enable them to take the most effective action to raise attainment and narrow the gaps in outcomes.
Who is the Target Group?
Students in year groups ranging from Reception to Year 11 (5-16 years) who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the previous six years or any children who have been in public care for at least six months continuously (aged 4-15 years) are the focus group for the premium.
What is the Guidance from the Government?
Schools may use the Pupil Premium in ways that they believe are best for this cohort. Innovative approaches can be used but the outcomes of this intervention will be monitored through performance tables and Ofsted.
