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. This funding has been in place for several years now and evidence is showing that the gap is closing.
There is now also Early Years Pupil Premium as of 2015. Recent studies show that there is a 19 month gap in school readiness between the most and least advantaged children. In April 2015 Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) was introduced to support the closing of this gap for 3 and 4 years olds.
