The Pupil Premium, introduced in April 2011, is allocated to children who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), Service children and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Children who had FSM at any time in the last 6 years are also eligible.
The Government has said that schools should decide how this money is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional funding should be made for pupils. Schools are however held accountable for how this money is spent and are required to publish this information online.
The school's funding is used to provide a range of interventions such as additional one to one or small group phonics, reading or writing activities. Both on-going school assessment data and periodic statutory assessment data are used to identify which children should be prioritised for inclusion in intervention groups.
