The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative introduced in April 2011 designed to target resources on those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. The Pupil Premium is provided for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever 6) or those children who have been looked after continously for at least 6 months (CLA). For 2017-18, Pupil Premium has a value fo £1320 per eligible pupil, £1900 for children who are looked after, and a smaller provision of £300 for those pupils who have a parent in the armed services. Neither the Government or any Government agencies have dictated how the Pupil Premium money should be spent; schools have the freedom to spend the premium in a way they think is best to raise the attainment for the most vulnerable pupils and narrow the gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils.
