What is the Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.”

“Current information suggests that pupils are continuing to make the same strong progress. Your systems and processes in holding teachers to account include challenging progress meetings and checks. These identify pupils who are at risk of falling behind. You take steps to intervene and work closely with others including parents, to help get pupils back on track.”
