The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM from Reception to Year 11. For Looked After Children, the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After Data returns. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible, by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
Objectives for Pupil Premium at Highwood Primary School
The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for the targeted pupils.
The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of the targeted pupils and their peers.
The school will use the additional finding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.
We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.
The Headteacher and her team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put in place for Pupil Premium and report to the Governing Body on its progress and impact. A governor has been appointed to be responsible for Pupil Premium and impact.
