General Context

The Pupil Premium is a per-pupil payment, additional to main school funding, which is intended to address underlying socioeconomic inequalities between pupils.  Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Ofsted Recommendations

School leaders, including governing bodies, should ensure that Pupil Premium funding is not simply absorbed into mainstream budgets, but, instead, is carefully targeted at the designated children.  Spending should be evaluated to ensure maximum benefit for disadvantaged pupils.

Schools should continue to seek ways to encourage parents and carers to apply for FSM where pride, stigma or changing circumstances act as barriers to its take-up.

Ofsted should continue to evaluate the use of Pupil Premium funding by schools to ensure that they are focusing it on disadvantaged pupils and using it effectively.
