The Government believes that the Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to the main school funding, is the best way to address inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those children who are not. Pupil Premium Funding is used to tackle disadvantage in order to reach the pupils who need it most. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
Schools are currently given Pupil Premium funding of £1,320 per pupil for those whose families who have registered for Free School Meals (FSM). This includes any child who has been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years.
