The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is targeted  school funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of an identified group of pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:

  • Registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • Been in care for 6 months or longer
