The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers and supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.
Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstrean and non-mainstream schools.
Allocations are made based on the school which the eligible pupil attends at the time of the January school census.
