Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium? 

In England and Wales, data would suggest that students who:

• are entitled to free school meals (FSM),
• have been entitled to FSM during the last six years (Ever6),
• children in care or looked after (CIC)

Are less likely to make good educational progress than students who haven’t. The reasons for this correlation are complex and no actual causal relationship has been proven. However, the government has a stated aim to narrow this gap in attainment and since 2011 has provided additional funding to schools to support them in so doing.
