Pupil Premium funding was first introduced in schools back in April 2011. This is additional funding to attempt to address the underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers.
Each January the government use census figures from schools to calculate how many children are eligible for pupil premium funding. Based on this information each school then receives the grant in the next April for the following financial year.
Schools are free to determine how they spend the funding; they are also however held accountable by Inspectors, as to what the impact has been for those children eligible for pupil premium funding.
