Pupil Premium was introduced by the Department for Education (DfE) in 2011, as additional funding for pupils who receive Free School Meals and are Looked After Children. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disdvantage pupils reaches the pupils who need it most. From September 2012 the Government has required schools to publish online information about how they have used the Pupil Premium. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responisbility. In the 2017 to 2018 financial year, schools will receive £1320 for each primary aged child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. Schools also receive £1,500 for each looked after child at their school.
