Pupil Premium, now known as 'Disadvantaged Pupils Funding' comes directly from central government to help schools provide the best education possible for targeted pupils.
Each school receives this funding according to how many pupils at the school are registered for 'free school meals'. The funding also includes pupils who are in social care and pupils whose parents work in the armed services.
