The purpose of the pupil premium is to help students from low income families who are eligible for free school meals (or have been at any time in the last six years), looked after children and those from families with parents in the armed forces. In particular, the main aim of the pupil premium is to raise the achievement of these students and to close the attainment gap between these students and those not entitled to this support. Nationally, these students achieve at a level significantly below those not entitled to the premium on all key indicators.
The Ofsted reports on the use of the premium (Pupil Premium Guidance: Reference 120197 and 130016), and further guidance from the Department for Education (DfE – RR282) outline how the premium is used in approximately 262 schools. These reports indicate how difficult it often is to disaggregate pupil premium funding from general school funding. The reports have been used to generate our whole school policy.
