Pupil Premium Allocation
What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The Pupil Premium has risen over the last few years nationally, with schools attracting £1900 per 'looked-after child' or £1300 per child who has been able to access free school meals within the last 6 years.
The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:
-the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers
-the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium
-the reports for parents that schools have to publish online
