The Pupil Premium and Better Outcomes

Schools are entitled to a pupil premium for those pupils entitled to free school meals.

We can analyse for each school the results from a SHEU survey to compare answers from those pupils receiving free school meals with those from the rest of the sample.  A typical report is shown below:
