The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is targeted school funding given to publicly funded schools in England, including Free Schools, to raise the attainment of an identified group of pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who are or have been:
registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (£1320)
a looked after child in the care of the local authority or recently adopted from care (£1900)
a service child (£300)
During the financial year, schools receive the above amounts for children who qualify.
