The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. Schools use the pupil premium to raise the attainment of those who are eligible for the funding and close gaps between them and their peers. From the 1 September 2016, schools maintained by the local authority must publish their strategy for the school’s use of the pupil premium on their websites.
The Government believes that schools should decide how the Pupil Premium is allocated and spent, since it is felt that they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. From September 2012, schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.
Some of the support and resources funded by the pupil premium also benefits children who may not necessarily be eligible for free school meals but have been identified by the school as being at a disadvantage compared to their peers.
