Disadvantaged Pupils 2016-17

 

What is it?

Disadvantaged Pupils funding is a Government initiative that allocates funding to schools for the specific purpose of increasing the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on pupils who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children that are in care and children of parents with armed forces service.

Why has it been introduced?

Research has shown that there are inequalities between pupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers in areas such as attainment, exclusion rates and school attendance. The Government believes that the Disadvantaged Pupils funding, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the underlying inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it.
