Pupil Premium Funding is in addition to the funding received in the main school budget. Schools receive funding based on the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM). It is intended to address inequalities between children eligible for FSM and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
The DfE expects all schools to report on their use of the Pupil Premium and its impact.
Our Pupil Premium Statement details the school’s use of pupil premium funding (and recovery premium funding for the 2021 to 2022 academic year) to help improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. It outlines our pupil premium strategy, how we intend to spend the funding in this academic year and the effect that last year’s spending of pupil premium had at Hillingdon Primary School. The statement is currently under review.
