The purpose of pupil premium is to ensure that funding reaches groups of students who need it most and therefore closes the achievement gap. These groups are-
• Students from low income families that have been eligible for free school meals at any time in the last 6 years.
• Students who have been looked after for more than 6 months.
• Students whose parents are in the armed forces.
