Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. In 2017–18 schools were allocated a total of £2.4 billion funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

The government believes that the pupil premium, which is in 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 peers by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
