The Pupil Premium is allocated to children in school from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), and those who have been eligible at any point in the last six years, as well as children who have been registered as 'looked after' children continously for more than six months or children who have a parent who is currently serving in the armed forces.
Schools are able to use the Pupil Premium flexibly in order to narrow the attainment and achievement gaps between these groups of socially disadvantaged children and the population as a whole. Schools are accountable for their use of Pupil Premium and, from September 2012, we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Pupil Premium.
