Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is additional funding given to schools to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in England.

Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for:
  • Free School Meals- Pupils recorded in the school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals since May 2013
  • LAC and Post-LAC – Pupils adopted from care or who have left care
  • Service Children- Pupils whose parents work in the armed forces
Statement of Intent for Highfurlong School
Our aim at Highfurlong is to ensure all pupils, regardless of needs or circumstances, are able to make academic progress and achieve their potential. The learning needs and barriers to progress for pupils at Highfurlong are unique to the individual pupil, therefore we largely focus on each child’s aspirations, barriers and learning strategies to target interventions and support. Each pupil’s Education and Health Care Plan, Annual Review and Pupil Premium Case Study / Impact Statement, and Personalised Learning Plans outlines their progress and identifies barriers to learning and interventions.
