The Pupil Premium is funding provided by the government to schools (on top of the normal funding per child) to support learners who are disadvantaged to achieve their potential.
Statistics for many years show that there is a gap between the attainment of those students who are considered disadvantaged and those which are not, even if they come to school with the same abilities. This is because of the opportunities that some children can be offered. The Pupil Premium is designed to help close this gap and allow all students to achieve their potential.
