Pupil Premium funding is paid to schools at the rate of £1385 per child for children currently entitled to free school meals (of if they have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years) as well as for looked after children and pupils who have parents in the armed forces. It is paid directly to schools with the purpose of diminshing differences between disadvantage children and their peers. The government allows schools to decide for themselves how best to spend this money, based on the needs of the children in their school. Pupil premium is not a personal budget for individual pupils and schools are not required to spend all of the allocated grant on eligible pupils. The Education Endowment Foundation recommend that schools particularly focus their pupil premium on supporting high-quality teaching.
