As part each school’s budget, the government allocates a ‘Pupil Premium’ specifically to raise attainment and support those pupils who are on free school meals.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
