Pupil Premium is government funding which is allocated to schools for children who are, or have been in the past 6 years, eligible for free school meals (FSM), service children, adopted children and any child who has been looked after by the local authority.
You will remember the letters that have been sent to parents over the past few years encouraging you to apply for free school meals even if you do not want your child to have a school lunch. The reason for this is to ensure that our school receives the maximum amount of funding possible. In the pupil premium strategy statement below you can see how we have used the money to support the children and raise standards for all pupils at Headfield.
You can see how important it is that we access this money so that we can continue to focus on raising the achievement of all of the pupils at our school. We are passionate about our children achieving the highest academic standards in order to prepare them well for the next stage of their educational journey.
Each year we will publish a report explaining how we are planning to spend the money, what our main focus is and what the impact of the support has been. You will also be able to see the impact of this money as it supports our continued efforts to raise standards and help the children become confident and well rounded individuals.
If you have any questions about pupil premium or whether you feel that you might be eligible, please do not hesitate to contact school and speak to the Office team or Mr Ryan Ellis who is our Pupil Premium Lead. We are also more than happy to provide support with form filling if you wish.
