The Pupil Premium is additional funding paid to schools in respect of their disadvantaged pupils (pupils who have been registered for free schools meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years or are looked after continuously by the local authority for more than six months or whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces ).  Schools receive this funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers.
