What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.
The Pupil Premium Grant is funding allocated to schools to enable them to provide additional support to their disadvantaged pupils. The aim of the grant is to help close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. In 2021-2022 secondary schools will receive £955 for pupils who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years.
