The pupil premium grant is funding provided to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and their peers.
The grant is allocated in line with the financial year, which begins in April. Each year’s allocations are based on data from the previous January’s census. However, spending plans for the pupil premium funding are in line with the school year.
The grant can be spent as each school sees fit, as long as it is used to improve the attainment of eligible pupils. Schools do not need to spend an equal amount on each pupil, or use the money for interventions that benefit only eligible pupils.
