What is it?
Schools receive a payment, or Pupil Premium for any child who:
· who have been in receipt of free school meals at any point in the past 6 years or
· who have been continuously looked after the past six months or
· whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
Schools are held accountable for this funding. Performance tables will capture the achievement of disadvantaged pupils covered by the Pupil premium. Hillstone School is committed to providing effective resources and ensuring vital support is in place for our disadvantaged pupils to improve their academic outcomes. This will take the form of both academic and pastoral support. The range of strategies will be evidence based using strategies identified by the Education Endowment Trust, past experience, or by other schools. Research shows that for disadvantaged pupils the most effective strategy is quality first teaching.
