The pupil premium grant gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11. The additional money is available from central government; and is allocated to schools is based upon the number of pupils who:
- Are currently eligible and registered for Free School Meals (FSM)
- Have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) in the last six years (referred to ‘Ever 6’)
- Are children whose parents were in the Armed Forces (Service Children)
- Have been in local authority care for 6 months or more (now one day or more)
It is therefore important to sign up for free school meals, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, as registering for free school meals could raise an extra £1300 per pupil for the school.
