Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.  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 Pupil Premium funding and their peers by ensuring that this funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
