What is Pupil Premium?

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 peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to Schools to work with students 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 students who have been looked after (for one day or more or who were adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under a special guardianship order or a residence order), and children of service personnel.

SET Felix Primary is eligible for Pupil Premium funding.
