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:

  • who are eligible for free school meals (£955 per child)
  • who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past 6 years (£955 per child)
  • who have been in Local Authority care for 1 day or more (£2345 per child)
  • who are adopted from care under the 2002 Adoption Act or who left care under a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005. Schools will also receive the Pupil Premium for children who left care under a Child Arrangements Order (previously known as a Residence Order) on or after 14 October 1991 (£2345)
  • whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces (£310 per child, known as the Service Pupil Premium)

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.

If you think your child may qualify for Free School Meals, please do not hesitate to apply for these via the North Yorkshire website. You can find more information about eligibility for Free School Meals via the link to the NYCC page on this page.
