Pupil premium: The Facts
Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. The level of premium for 2013-14 was £900 per primary pupil, rising to £1300 per pupil for 2014-15. The reason for this is that Nationally, children who are or have been eligible for free school meals have underachieved academically, for a variety of reasons. Further information can be found at
