Pupil Premium at St Peter's

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Department for Education (DFE) in 2011. It is funding in addition to the school's budget and is based on the number of children eligible for free school meals (FSM), Looked After Children (LAC) and for those children whose parents are currently in the Armed Forces. (Service children)

Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.


“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.”
