Pupil Premium Funding Spend & Impact Report 2022-2023

A brief explanation about the pupil premium and the allocation

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

The pupil premium is money in the school budget allocated to support children and families with lower incomes and children in families who work in the services such as the army. It is calculated on the number of children who are registered as eligible for free school meals or have been in the last 6 years and those who have a parent in the services. Children who are ‘looked after’ also receive the pupil premium.

Schools have the freedom to choose how to spend this money related to the children’s needs. The intention is that support will be targeted at helping these children achieve their very best. The money can be spent supporting families directly e.g.; travel costs, trip expenditure, uniform costs, access to extracurricular activities. It can also be spent on resources and activities which will impact achievement and engagement for this particular group of children e.g. One to one support session, reading resources, enhancing the curriculum, intervention groups, extra teaching sessions and reading recovery programmes.

We are very proud of our school. Within its secure and friendly environment, we work hard to attain high standards of achievement and behaviour. Positive behaviour is the key to success and ensuring the safety and well-being of all the children at Herringthorpe is one of our main aims. Each child is recognised as an individual and as such is valued and encouraged to develop to their full potential. We also encourage our children to care for each other and the environment.
