Pupil Premium Grant

Introduction

From September 2012, we will also require schools to publish online information about how they have used the Pupil Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the premium.

What is Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

In most cases the pupil premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for the 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.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families. New measures will be included in the pro-forma tables that will capture the acheivement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

Who can receive pupil premium

The Government has decided that elilgibility for the Pupil Premium 2012-2013 will be extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years. Earlier this year we consulted on options for extending the coverage of Pupil Premium. As a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower education attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM.
