Pupil Premium Reporting to Parents
The Department for Education website states:
- The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM (Free school meals) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been in Local Authority care, continuously for more than six months.
- The Government believes the Pupil Premium, which is additional funding, is the best way to address current inequalities to children.
- It is for schools to decide how to spend Pupil Premium as they are best placed to assess what is needed. But they are held accountable for how they have used funding to support pupils from low income families.
