Pupil premium? We've already got one, or four

We already have at least four pupil premiums in operation: for those attending very small schools; for those eligible for free school meals; for those attending schools which are able to attract wealthy sponsors; and for those attending a school on the Isles of Scilly ... I don't believe all schools should receive the same funding per pupil regardless of the nature of those pupils. I am, however, concerned for the plight of those schools in the low free school meals bracket, which are about to fall even further behind in the funding league tables.
