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 is allocated to schools for pupils, in Years R to 11, that are known to be eligible for free school meals (PPG) or who have been eligible for PPG in the past six years (Ever 6).
