Pupil Premium & Catch-up Premium
Pupil Premium & Catch-up Premium funding
Schools are given additional funding to help support students in the following situations:
FSM ever 6: Students currently accessing Free School Meals, plus those who have accessed Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years (£935 per student from 2014-15).
CLA: Students who have been in local authority care for one day or more and are aged between five and fifteen (£1900 per student for 2015/16).
As students in the FSM ever 6 and CLA categories may experience circumstances that create barriers to achievement, these two groups have been collectively renamed by the DfE and OFSTED as ‘disadvantaged pupils’ (DP).
