Pupil Premium is funding which is allocated to schools based on the number of children eligible for free school meals (currently or in the last 6 years). This also includes children who are currently looked after or have been adopted out of care.
This extra funding is aimed at improving life chances for children from less advantaged backgrounds including raising their levels in reading, writing and maths. We closely monitor the spending of this premium and the impact it is making.
