The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and some of their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals, to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and to children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. At present this also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012 schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium to ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.
