The Use of Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever6 FSM measure). Funding is also allocated to children in Service families and children who are looked after by the local authority or adopted.
Schools are able to decide how best to spend the Pupil Premium money as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their school. Schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.
At Heymann Primary School we support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality teaching, supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required and providing opportunities for our Gifted and Talented pupils. The School Leadership Team and the Governing Body monitors the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.
For details of how we spent our allocation and the impact of this, please see the document below.
