What is pupil premium?
The government introduced pupil premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally and enabling more students from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend top universities.
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.
New measures have been included in the performance tables that capture the achievement of those disadvantaged pupils covered by the pupil premium.
