The Pupil Premium is allocated on the basis of the number of 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. This will also include pupils eligible
for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying school’s budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for
students attracting Pupil Premium funding.
