For the last five years, the government has been giving schools an increasing amount of money for the Pupil Premium Grant.
This year we have received an extra £1,320 for every child who has been eligible for free school meals in the last six years and £1,900 for every child who is a looked after child or who was a looked after child and has now been adopted (school need to be informed about this).
Whilst being eligible for free school meals or being looked after does not mean that a child will not succeed in school, nationally this group under-achieve. The money is for schools to use to close this under-achievement gap. It is not allocated to each individual child but is a pot of money each school can use as they think best.
