Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an amount of money the government allocates to each school, to support all pupils to reach their potential. It is particularly aimed at pupils who may also be in receipt of free school meals (FSM). It also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure - FSM6).

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.

Aims

As a school, Hampden Gurney is committed to ensuring that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils, in particular those of vulnerable or socially disadvantaged pupils.

Our Pupil Premium money is used to ensure all FSM children and LAC children are supported in making, at least, good academic progress. The progress of all pupils is carefully and regularly tracked and there is an expectation that over the Key Stage, the majority of pupils will make a minimum of four APS of progress in Reading, Writing and Maths.
