Pupil Premium Background

The pupil premium is allocated to schools in respect of children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This applies to both mainstream and non-mainstream settings. In 2012-13 this will also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). Pupil premium is also allocated to schools in respect of children from service families.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit to “close the gap” between children from disadvantaged circumstances and those above the low-income threshold – it is not linked to a specific child but is to be used for overall impact. However, we are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Pupil Premium for Disadvantaged Children at Hackforth and Hornby C of E Primary School

Our principles

At Hackforth and Hornby C of E Primary School, a personalised learning programme is provided for each student to ensure that all achieve their maximum potential and that any gaps in achievement are significantly narrowed. The school is committed to:

  • ensuring that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils
  • ensuring that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis, which will identify priority groups or individuals.

How pupil premium is used

Please note that this year (2015/16) school did not receive any funds under this category of pupil premium.

Details of how the premium is used will be published when appropriate.

Pupil Premium – Service Children

School receives £250.00 per service pupil, in 2015/16 school received £1500.00.  In line with the Armed Forces Covenant, this premium supports the pastoral care of our service pupils in the following ways:

  • Appropriate staff training, particularly in the pastoral care of potentially vulnerable service pupils whose parents are on active service.
  • Involvement in extra curricular activities which support the unique life style of service pupils, we subscribe to HMS Heroes; pupils attend meetings outside school, supported by staff and attend local and county events throughout the year.
  • Administration support, particularly for transition.
