Pupil Premium


How we use Pupil Premium to make a difference



Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools. It was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.


The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.


The information below outlines how we are making best use of the funding in order to support all groups of children at Stokeinteignhead Primary.
