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 the financial year 2021-22 Hallfield will receive a Pupil Premium Grant of £180,230.  This is based on 134 eligible pupils. For the EYFS children, we expect a grant of £3,625.20 based on 12 eligible 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.
