Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and narrow the difference between them and their peers.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per disadvantaged pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
