Pupil Premium and Sports Premium are ring-fenced amounts of money which schools must use to an effective end.
Primary PE and Sports Funding
What is the Pupil Premium? The Pupil Premium is a Government grant which is allocated to schools to assist pupils from low-income families who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) and for children who have been ‘looked after’ by the Local Authority for more than six months.
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” Source – DFE website.
