Overview of the Pupil Premium Grant 15/16

In 2011/12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding initiative. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of children who are either eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or are Looked After Children (LAC). From 2012/13 it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
