Filters & Groups: Pupil Premium
You can use Insight's filtering and grouping options to report on your Pupil Premium children.
How does Insight determine which pupils are Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium status can either be explicitly set, or automatically inferred from other information such as FSM.
The explicit setting option is likely to be more accurate, as Insight will then match your MIS (if syncing) or any CTF imports. See our guide on maintaining Pupil Premium data for more.
Users with Admin access to Insight can update this by editing a pupil's profile.
Setting Pupil Premium to Yes or No explicitly defines a pupil as having it or not.
The Auto option will make Insight infer Pupil Premium from other profile details. These include:
- Ever 6 FSM
- Ever In Care
- Service Child
Your MIS is taken to be the source of truth. If you change anything in Insight, then conflicting information from your MIS, Insight will update to match the MIS' information.
- See the government's Pupil Premium eligibility criteria, which describes the date ranges and conditions that make children eligible for funding.
