Schools receive a payment, or Pupil Premium (PP), for each child who is registered for Free School Meals (FSM), children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (Ever6) and those who have been in continuous care for six months or more (CLA). The grant for the academic year 2015-2016 was £935 for FSM and Ever6 students and £1,500 for students identified as CLA. Schools also received £300 (2011-2012) for student whose parents are serving in the armed forces. Pupil Premium funding is additional to main school funding. Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment. They also have the responsibility to report on Pupil Premium allocation, spend and impact.
