What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools based on:
- children registered eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)
- looked after children (LAC)
- children of parents currently serving in the armed forces.
This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.
