The Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to schools for pupils who meet the following criteria: the number of pupils of statutory school age who are eligible to receive free school meals (FSM); those who have been Looked After by a Local authority for more than six months and also those who are adopted and who are under a Special Guardianship Order. The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to address any inequalities that may be faced by pupils who are eligible for FSM or who are Looked After.
