The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and the children of armed service personnel. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities for children eligible for free school meals (FSM) by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
