What is a Pupil Premium Grant?
A pupil premium grant is additional funding the Government supply to schools to provide additional funding to support schools in raising attainment for those children who are eligible for free school meals, or who are in the care of the local authority.
The pupil premium grant was introduced in April 2011 after it was recognised that, in general, these groups have a lower attainment than those from less disadvantaged backgrounds. Schools are free to spend the pupil premium grant as they see fit to support targeted pupils. A school’s pupil premium grant will benefit pupils from those vulnerable groups either directly or indirectly.
