What is pupil premium?
Pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities, closing the gap between them and their peers.
This funding is available to both mainstream and non mainstream schools such as special schools and Pupil Referral Units. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
* Registered as eligible for free school meals at any point over the last 6 years.
* Looked after by the Local Authority for 6 months.
