Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to schools based on the number of children who come from low-income families. This includes pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years and pupils who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
