Pupil Premium Funding


What is the Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. It is targeted at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as students from less deprived families.

The pupil premium is allocated using the following criteria:

  • Pupils who, at any point in the past 6 years, have been accepted for Free School Meals based on family income.
  • Pupils who have been continuously looked after by the local authority for the past six months or who have been adopted from care or who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence order.
  • Pupils whose parent/parents are currently serving in the armed forces or who are in receipt of a pension from the MOD.

The school is accountable for how this money is spent and the impact it is making on those children who are eligible.


How many pupils at Hackforth & Hornby C of E Primary School are eligible for the Pupil Premium?

In 2018/19 12 pupils were eligible for the Free School Meal and Service Pupils elements of the Pupil Premium.
