Pupil premium is funding that we receive from the government in addition to our main school funding, to benefit pupils who are deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. Specifically, Pupil premium funding is targeted for those pupils who are in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or those children who have received FSM in the last 6 years (Ever6) or have been looked after continuously over the last 6 months (CLA). There is also a smaller amount of funding for pupils for who have a parent in the Armed services. Though there is no specific directive on how the money should be spent it is clear that the money should be spent on initiatives which narrow the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achievers and to overcome any barriers for learning.
The 2017/18 Pupil Premium funding for Huby School is £6480. This is being used in a variety of ways to improve pupil attainment and to help overcome any barriers to learning.
Pupil Premium strategy meetings take place twice a year, please contact the school for further details.
