Supporting Disadvantaged Pupils

Supporting Disadvantaged Pupils

The Disadvantaged Pupils' funding (previously Pupil Premium) is additional funding given to schools so that they can support underprivileged pupils - who may find circumstances outside of school challenging due to financial hardship or other problems - close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

 Three groups have been identified :

  • Pupils who are entitled to Free School Meals (or have been anytime during the last six years). These are known as the ‘Ever 6 FSM’; 
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months; 
  • Children of Armed Services personnel.
