Pupil Premium and funding for Looked-After Children
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This also includes pupils 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 we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. We are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium, which ensures that parents and others are made fully aware of how it has been distributed, and the extra support that the pupils received.

The strategy also includes the Recovery Premium Grant which is part of the government’s package of funding to support pupils whose education has been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19). It is focused on pupil premium eligible pupils because of the additional impact of the pandemic on these students.
