Pupil Premium & covid catch-up

What is ‘Pupil Premium’?

Pupil Premium (PP) funding is an additional sum allocated to schools by the government in addition to the main school budget. It is awarded on the basis of the number of children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) either currently or at any time in the past 6 years.  The funding is seen as a way to address the learning of children identified as vulnerable to underachieving, to support initiatives to ensure that these pupils fulfill their full potential. Looked After children also receive a premium. From 2012, Service children (those who have or had a parent from an Armed Forces background in the past 3 years) receive a smaller premium.
