The Pupil Premium funds are allocated to schools with pupils on roll that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. Each of these pupils will attract funding. Schools will have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
The report below outlines our current position for the allocation of funds in the previous year and likely spend in the future. It is updated each January.
