Pupil Premium Funding Pupil premium funding is additional funding allocated to schools to support children who have been registered for Free School Meals within the last six years, looked after and adopted children and children of service personnel. The purpose of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment. The amount of money allocated to schools under Pupil Premium is clearly identifiable. It is, however, at the discretion of the school to decide how it is spent, since they are in the best position to assess what intervention strategies or additional support will be best placed to support their individual pupils to make progress. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done: the annual figures for Dawley Brook can be found by clicking on the links below.
