Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.


For financial year 2016-17 Hallfield will receive a Pupil Premium Grant of £316,800.  This is based on 240 eligible pupils.  We also received £9,667 for Nursery children.


All spending of the pupil premium grant is aimed at moving children beyond age related expectations and accelerating progress. The predominant focus is on English, Mathematics, ICT and transferring skills across the curriculum. Support will also be channelled towards raising aspirations, self-esteem and social skills in order to break the barriers and facilitate learning.


In previous financial years, the funding allocation was as follows:

2015-16 - £352,440 and £9,667 for EYFS children

2014-15 -  £398,000

2013-14 -  £334,503

2012-13 -  £221,165

2011-12 -  £126,850

In December 2013 we received a letter from Rt Hon David Laws MP informing us we are in the 250 top performing schools in the country in terms of the progress our disadvantaged pupils make.
