The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. (Gov.UK July 2015)
Pupil Premium was introduced in 2011/2012.
The Pupil Premium for the academic year 2015-2016 was allocated to pupils on roll in January 2015 and January 2016 who are known to have been eligible for free school meals, were ‘children looked after’ continuously for more than 6 months at any time in the last six years, and service children i.e. children of parents in the armed services. The funding is determined by financial year.
Schools have freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. Schools have a responsibility to report on their use of Pupil Premium.
In the academic year 2015 -2016 Fairfield School had learners who were eligible for additional Pupil Premium.

In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England - The Primary PE & Sport Premium. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to primary school headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
