PUPIL PREMIUM IS FUNDING TO IMPROVE EDUCATION OUTCOMES FOR DISADVANTAGED PUPILS IN SCHOOLS IN ENGLAND.

Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils, so in April 2011 Pupil Premium was introduced and allocated to students from low-income families who are currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and to students who have been looked after for more than 6 months continuously.

Research showed that, as a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM, so Pupil Premium funding was introduced as a method to help close the attainment gap and help to provide all students with the same educational opportunities.
