The Pupil Premium
was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils
who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six
years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
Sir Michael Wilshaw, Ofsted’s Chief Inspector at the time the funding was announced, said the fund needs to “help poor children to achieve as well as their more prosperous peers”. The money for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals and looked after children is targeted to ensure accelerated progress for all identified children, through extra support and intervention, to ensure that any performance gap is overcome. The attainment and progress of these groups is being carefully tracked so that we are able to report the impact of this.
