Pupil Premium Grant
Pupil Premium Grant – Overview 2016-2017
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding allocated to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. School receives this funding to pupils who come from low-income families who are either currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) as well as those pupils who are, or have been, Looked After Children (LAC) continuously for six months or more.
