Pupil Premium is money that is provided by the government to support pupils who have received free school meals within the last six years, have parents who are in the armed forces or are looked after children. The Pupil Premium is additional to the main school funding and is seen by the government as a means of addressing the inequalities and disadvantages that exist for some children.
Schools have the freedom to target their Pupil Premium allocation in ways they see most advantageous to support the raising of attainment and progress of this group.
As a school we always consider the impact of any proposed spending using the information provided by the Education Endowment Foundation in their Teaching and Learning Toolkit and the effect size of an intervention or action as researched by Professor John Hattie through Visible Learning.
