Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is a funding allocated to schools by the Department of Education to increase social mobility and reduce the gap in performance between pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers. Its purpose is to raise attainment, accelerate progress and fulfil the achievement potential of all children. Schools receive funding for each disadvantaged pupil and can use the funding flexibly, in the best interests of eligible pupils. It is up to schools to decide how to spend the Pupil Premium funding because they are best placed to assess what additional educational provision should be put in place to ensure maximum progress for all the children within their care. All schools will be held accountable for how they have used the Pupil Premium funding and the impact it has had on the children’s learning.

At Hillcross Primary School, the Pupil Premium funding is used to create and enhance further learning experiences for children.  All activities are based on a thorough evaluation of what 'next steps' must be taken to increase opportunity and maximise experiences for the children.  Additionally most activities are linked to current school development priorities.
