DfE Guidance on Pupil Premium Funding

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Schools can make decisions about how to spend their Pupil Premium funding to ensure that there is a narrowing of the attainment gap between pupils eligible for funding and those not.

The Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils:

Disadvantaged Pupils PPG amount per pupil
Pupils in Year 7 to Year 11 who are recorded as ‘Ever 6 FSM’, including those who are eligible NRPF pupils £955
LAC as defined in the Children Act 1989 – children who are in the care of, or provided accommodation by, an English LA £2345
PLAC, who have ceased to be looked after by an LA in England or Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order or a child arrangements order £2345
Service children SPP amount per pupil
Any pupil in Reception to Year 11 recorded as an ‘Ever 6 service child’ or in receipt of a child pension from the MoD £310

At HHS, we use our Pupil Premium funding in 3 main ways:

  1. To ensure high quality teaching and learning for all students through excellent staff professional development
  2. To ensure targeted support for students we are in receipt of PP funding for so that they can access school fully and fulfil their academic potential
  3. Wider approaches to ensure all students build confidence, resilience and aspiration

We regularly review the impact of our strategy and the things we have spent our allocated funding on (see the Pupil Premium Strategy document) to ensure any progress and attainment gaps between these students and other students are reduced and ideally eradicated.
