The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to rise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11. The government introduced a fund of £625 million in April 2011 to give schools £400 per year for:
every child currently registered as eligible for free school meals
children who have been looked after for 6 months or longer
From April 2012, pupil premium funding was also extended to:
all children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
